On Monday, June 11, Sparky the Fire Dog, the official mascot of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) will host a special assembly at the James Clubhouse of Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas to share fire safety tips with children in the community.
Celebrating more than 60 years as the official mascot of the NFPA’s educational outreach efforts, a new Sparky the Fire Dog puppet was launched this year to help spread the word to children about the importance of fire safety. At the assembly Sparky will discuss fire prevention and the importance of having an escape plan. Sparky will also give the children fire hats and host a dance off with the debut of his new music video, “Two Ways Out,” a fun fire safety song to help remind children to always know two ways out of a room. The North Las Vegas Fire Department will also make a special appearance at the club for Sparky’s music video debut.
Sparky is in town for the NFPA Conference & Expo at Mandalay Bay June 11-14, a comprehensive education event covering fire protection, life safety, and electrical industries hosted by the world’s leading advocate of fire prevention and an authoritative source on public safety.
