A firefighter with Sarnia Fire Rescue in Ontario combined artistic vision with excellent carving skills to present the Fire Prevention Week theme with a Halloween twist. Firefighter Trevor Mitchell carved a highly detailed Sparky the Fire Dog® into a white pumpkin, with a house carved beside Sparky, and put the theme around the rim of the jack-o-lantern. The fun didn’t stop there. Sparky hosted a table of Fire Prevention Week materials at the local mall. His image was also featured on a fire safety education vehicle parked outside.

If you’re looking to carve a Sparky Halloween pumpkin or want to use the craft for a presentation, the Halloween Pumpkin Template on the Sparky website is a great tool for getting started. It includes directions and display suggestions.
