It’s Almost 2011! Are You Ready to Be Safe This Coming Year?

Hi, boys and girls! This is Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog. Welcome to Sparkles’ Kids Zone here on!
How is school going? Isn’t it fun going to school and learning everything that you can? I know that I am having fun going to fire safety dog school! It is so much fun!

Do you have fire drills at your school? Fire drills are so important not only at school but at home too! I’d love to hear about your home fire drills and your escape map!

If you don’t have an escape map and a plan, here’s a copy of a sheet to help you get started!

For the first one of you to send a photo of you and your escape map to me at, I’m going to send you your very own pawtographed copy of the book Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog* (be sure to ask your parents first!). Good luck!

I’ve been busy getting ready for the winter! Is it cold where you live? I am spending lots of time inside where it’s nice and warm learning all that I can about fire safety. Here’s a fun quiz for you. Let’s see if you can get the correct answer!

To stay safe, I need to:

A) Practice fire safety every day.
B) Think about fire safety every once in awhile.
C) Not worry about fire safety.

If you picked “A,” you are right! It’s important to practice your fire safety every day!

Let’s have some fun. Here’s a picture of me. Can you find me?


Fire Safety Tip!
Stop, drop, and roll if your clothes catch fire!

Here is the latest coloring page that I received! Thank you, Jack, for this wonderful picture! You did a pawsome job!

If you color a page, send me a picture of it and I will put it up here on the Kids Zone! This month, I will take all of the names of children who have submitted coloring pages and draw the name of one lucky winner to win one of my fire safety books, pawtographed by me! So, get out those crayons and get coloring, and good luck!


Here’s a new coloring page!

Would you like to send a picture to me? Send it to me at and I will share it here on the Kids Zone!

Well, that’s it for now. Until next time, practice fire safety every day!
