In Smithfield, Rhode Island, Sparky the Fire Dog® couldn’t wait to begin making the rounds for Fire Prevention Week(FPW), so he’s already kicked off his school visits. He’s pictured above with preschoolers at Greenville Nursery School. As he teaches kids about fire safety and shares with them this year’s theme: Don’t Wait–Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years,” his friends at the Smithfield Fire Department will assist in handing out copies of FPW News, as well as Sparky’s Activity Book and other items.


Residents and visitors of Smithfield will get regular reminders of the theme and its important message as they view FPW banners around town and are handed copies of the FPW brochure.
