If you’re looking to weave fire safety into your holiday celebrations, consider “Sparky, Our Favorite Fire Dog”! Sung to the tune of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” the song was created by Marty Ahrens, NFPA's senior manager of data and analytics. She sang the jingle earlier this week with her fellow NFPA “Fire Choir” members - a group of NFPA staff that performs holiday songs at our Quincy headquarters each year.


Here are the lyrics for your holiday singing pleasure:


Sparky, our favorite fire dog

Has a cold and wet black nose.
To keep us safe from fire
We should learn the things he knows.


Smoke alarms in the bedroom
Wake you up if there’s a fire.
Without that early warning,
Consequences could be dire.


“Have to have an escape plan.”
Sparky went on to say,
“Two ways out of every room
Can prevent a terrible doom.”


Put his words into practice.
Find a meeting place by a tree.
With Sparky, our favorite fire dog,
We make fire history!
