A New Year of Fire Safety Fun!

Welcome to Sparkles’ Kids Zone on Firelife.com!  

2012 promises to bring many special surprises from the fire safety dogs! Do you like surprises boys and girls? If you think last year was exciting, wait until you see what we have in store this year!

One of the new projects that we are doing is called “Fire Prevention Day: 365 days of Fire Safety.” Each day on our Facebook pages, we will have a new fire safety tip that we will talk about. It will be so much fun!








We have another new project that we will be doing as well, but we can’t spill the beans yet. Let’s just say it is very big and we will be able to reach even more boys and girls, just like you! We want you and all the boys and girls out there to stay safe!

We had a super fun New Year’s Eve party in Sparkles’ Clubhouse! We started streaming Sparkles’ Safety Spot at 11:30 p.m. and kept the party going until 2 a.m.! We had people from all over the world watching and it was big fun!

Here we are in the clubhouse getting ready to countdown to 2012!

What’s a party without party stuff?

Party time!










Siren loved dressing up in his Happy New Year’s hat! He’s one party animal!













We even had a studio audience in the clubhouse! Look how happy everyone looks! BOL (Barking Out Loud).










Meet our friend, Doo! Doo and his pet parent, Rob Lewis, were our special guests on Sparkles’ Safety Spot!












Doo is 18 weeks old and is training to be a Search and Rescue Live Victim and HRD Dog. According to Rob, Doo is one very smart puppy and is learning fast!

Here are a couple of pictures of Doo in training:

Another part of Doo’s training is that he has to be around children and grown-ups a lot.  He loves getting hugs from boys and girls!

Doo loves boys and girls!













Thank you for being on Sparkles’ Safety Spot and telling the boys and girls all about what you do, Doo. High paw! You rock!

Join Doo on Facebook and tell him the Fire Safety Dogs sent you!

Before we go, we wanted to share this picture. We hope that you and your family stay safe and remember to work on your escape map and practice it with your family!
