[Sparky the Fire Dog | http://www.sparky.org/] delighted children of all ages last weekend at a health promotion and injury prevention fair. Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Charlestown, Massachusetts, hosted the fair. Exhibits focused on stroke risk assessment, bike and water safety, and fire and burn prevention.


 

Sparky handed out smoke alarm safety information and cards with his website address. Volunteers staffing the NFPA booth distributed additional fire safetymaterials. This is the first year the hospital has hosted the fair.
