Welcome to Sparkles’ Kids Zone on Firelife.com!
Even though it is early in the New Year, we have been very busy!
One of our very favorite things we like to do is to host Fire Engineering Talk Radio with Firefighter Dayna. We did a firelife.com segment recently and it was extra, extra special! Our show went to the dogs! BOL (Barking out loud).Tango and Siren, along with their friends, some of the most famous canines and their pet parents in the United States, spent a fun two and a half hour evening on the program! Each of the dog’s pet parents shared the incredible work that each of their dogs do and even shared their favorite safety tips! We had so much fun!
Our special guests included Jake the Fire Dog, Emma Zen the Biker Dog and Team Leader of O2, Rainbow Diamond, Spokes Dog for Diamond Dachshund Rescue, the famous Surf Dog Ricochet, Mountain Doo the Search and Rescue Puppy, and Finnagus Sage, the Man hunting Bloodhound!

In our last column, we introduced you to our little buddy, Mountain Doo (known and “Doo” to his friends). Doo is an eighteen week old yellow Labrador retriever and is learning how to find people that may be lost and hurt. He is also learning to find people who might have fallen in the lake or fell from a boat! Doo’s dad, Rob, was trapped in the Joplin tornado in May 2011. Now, Rob and Doo are going to be helping others that may be trapped!
Mountain Doo and his human, Rob Lewis Doo and his dad, Rob, training Doo enjoys training!
We are excited that Doo has his own Facebook page! Please join Doo’s page, show the love, and tell him that the Fire Safety Dogs sent you!
We’d like to give a big shout out to our friends at PetSmart. They are helping us share our daily fire safety tips by tweeting!
Here’s one of the fire safety tips that we shared recently:
Since many of you may live where there is snow this winter, remind the grown-ups that you live with to make sure that the hydrants are clear of snow around them in case the fire department needs to come!
It is hard to believe that Siren is a year and half years old! He has grown up so fast!
Here’s a video about Siren when he was a puppy!
FIRE SAFETY TIP
If there is a fire hydrant by your house, please make sure that the grown-ups that you live with keep the area clear around it!
Send an email telling to the fire safety dogs what you do to help keep your family safe and we will share your story here on firelife.com!
