Sparky's Web Site Updated

Children learn fire safety through new interactive features on the site, according to NFPA, which says around 300 children ages 3-9 die from fires per year in the United States.

The National Fire Protection Association unveiled a redesigned Sparky the Fire Dog® Web site to continue its long history of teaching children about fire safety. Sparky, the official mascot since 1951, is the way many children learn about fire hazards these days, NFPA says.

New features on the site are engaging and informative, the association promises. A video promoting the site is also posted on YouTube.

"Although the Internet wasn't around when Sparky was a pup, children today haven't known a world without it," said Amy LeBeau, NFPA’s communications manager of public education. "It not only provides a valuable way to reach children on an individual basis about fire safety in a format they enjoy, it actually allows them to teach themselves safe behaviors by interacting with Sparky and helping him."

According to NFPA reports, around 300 children ages 3-9 die from fires per year in the United States.
