As the 68th birthday celebration of Sparky the Fire Dog® continues this week, NFPA encourages educators and first responders to share the upbeat video, “Firefighters are On Their Way” and inform children about basic firefighter responsibilities and emergency response sequences.


Many kids love firefighters. They enjoy learning about their gear and the ways that first responders jump into action when they are needed most. In this fun-filled video, artists on piano, guitar, and drums set the toe-tapping tone for former PBS Kids Personality Steve Songs to sing a lively tune. Sparky also plays a role in the jam session – sharing important safety messages throughout the clip that runs 4-plus minutes.


Check out the video at Sparky School House – and share it with the children in your community. You won’t be able to get the tune out of your head!
