#60 - Fire Boat.jpg


Sparky visits the Boston Fire Department where he was able to ride on the fire boat called Marine 1. The Marine 1 fire boat joined the Boston Fire Department in 2011, replacing fire boat Firefighter. Sparky is lucky to live near a fire department that has a need for, and has a fire boat – to give him chance to test his sea legs and experience a different fire service apparatus!


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!
