As the old saying goes, everything is bigger in Texas! In December, Operation Save a Life worked with Dallas Fire and Rescue to reach at-risk homes with smoke alarm installations. At the after-school event held in the Dallas area, families were able to sign up to have their smoke alarms checked and new ones installed if they needed them. As always, Sparky entertained the kids with his many music videos and
educational videos.This event was a great ending to 2018 but more so a big beginning for the
Public Education Division at Dallas Fire and Rescue. This year the educators
are out getting training, redesigning plans, and reaching more audiences. Fire marshals and educators across Texas will be attending theNorth Texas FireMarshal Association Conferencein the coming weeks. They
will be learning about educational messaging,the latest technology
updates, and how to stay current. It might only be January but Texas is heating up with all the fire prevention activities that are kicking off 2019.
