#54 - Fenway Park.jpg

 

With NFPA headquartered in Quincy, MA – the Red Sox are technically Sparky’s home team. Between that and it’s iconic status as a ball park that can’t be missed, Sparky visited Fenway Park and saw the Green Monster as part of his birthday bucket list. Fenway Park is the official home for the Boston Red Sox, and originally opened in 1912. The Green Monster stands 37 feet 2 inches looking over leftfield with 264 seats available for people to sit. Sparky would like to thank Massachusetts Fire Services and Peter J. Ostroskey, State Fire Marshal for setting up this trip. 

 

Sparky turned 65 on March 18, 2016, and we have been pulling out all the stops to help him celebrate! He’s created a bucket list of 65 activities and events he’d like to accomplish between his birthday and October. As he checks them off his list, we’ll make sure to share them with you. Some of Sparky’s wishes are pretty lofty, while others are just fun or a bit silly. Check in weekly to see where he goes and what he’s up to!

NFPA’s educational messaging has been updated. The NFPA Educational Messages 2016 Edition Desk Reference is now available. The Desk Reference provides fire and life safety educators with accurate and consistent language for use when providing safety information to the public.

 

The 2016 Edition includes modified messaging around sleeping with the door closed, and additional messaging about carbon monoxide alarms, and fireplace safety. For ease of use, the document’s table of contents includes links to quickly get to the topic or section desired.

 

The educational Messages Advisory Committee meeting periodically to review NFPA's fire and burn safety

education messages and provide recommendations to NFPA public education staff for updating and revising

the messages.

The Angleton Volunteer Fire Department, of Angleton, Texas, orders Fire Prevention Week  in a Box because it provides an efficient way to get the bulk of supplies needed while leaving  ample time for planning Fire Prevention Week (FPW) events.

 

“We will break down all of the materials to ensure that each child has fun activities to take home Coloring Book Set.png

and share with the family,” said Captain Karl Gingrich. “The remaining items will be kept in our fire trucks to pass out at other events, such as Texas Night Out, Christmas on the Square, spring  events. For us, FPW doesn’t end in October.”

 

This is the third year that the department has used FPW products. “The material is consistent,” he said.  “What we use from NFPA is on the same line of what the kids already see and learn in school. Kids are able to relate to the materials.”

 

Captain Gingrich said that in addition to FPW in a Box, the department orders 800 Sparky® Fire Hats

and Sparky Crayons and coloring books to round out what’s needed for a successful campaign.
