Sparkles’ Clubhouse is Under Construction!

Hi boys and girls!  Welcome to Sparkles’ Kids Zone on Firelife.com!   I love writing this column because I get to have fun sharing fire safety and all the adventures of the fire safety dogs!

Nothing says more fun than having your very own clubhouse! The fire safety dogs are so excited that construction has begun and that our clubhouse will soon be finished! We would like to give a shout out to our good friends at First Alert for the new clubhouse and for helping keep children, just like you, safe!

In the picture below, the clubhouse arrives on a big trailer. We were all so excited that it was finally here! We had this clubhouse made just for us!

Next, the clubhouse was moved to the spot where it would be!

Here, the clubhouse is being lowered onto the ground. It was really fun to watch this! When they unloaded the clubhouse, William and his son made sure that they were very careful and did what they could to stay safe! The clubhouse was finally in the spot that Firefighter Dayna had picked out. It was a big day!

Siren was really excited to get the key from William! We were now owners of a new clubhouse!

Here’s what the clubhouse looked like after it was safely in its spot! We could hardly wait to get started fixing it up! It still has a long way to go!

The next day, the electricians went to work! First, they dug a trench ( a trench is a big long hole)…

Then, they ran the electrical wires to the clubhouse and then they covered up the hole. Tango and Siren really enjoyed watching this! We had to stay away though so that we would be safe!

Over the next few days, the contractors worked on putting in the insulation and the sheetrock. We were so excited! It was really starting to look like a clubhouse!

Phew! All this work made us tired! Siren jumped up on the porch to take a rest. Supervising was hard work!

Then, Siren thought he better check underneath the clubhouse to see if it was okay. It passed his inspection! The clubhouse looks great and Siren said that it was okay to keep working on the clubhouse!

Vigilant Hose Company
Emmitsburg, Maryland

 

When Firefighter Dayna was at the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, Maryland, she went over to the Vigilant Hose Company to live stream Sparkles’ Safety Spot. The fire safety dogs and I weren’t able to make that trip, but that was okay! We got to watch Firefighter Dayna over the web! Boy, did it ever look like she had fun! The firefighters there were so nice and we were so excited that they gave the viewers of Sparkles Safety Spot a tour of their fire station, shared with the boys and girls how firefighters are their friends, and even showed everyone their museum. How cool is that?

 

Here’s a picture of two of their fire trucks. One even talks! The fire truck that talks everyone when it is going to back up, when it is going to turn, and so much more! Firefighter Dayna said that she had never had so much fun than when she sat in that fire truck! She told me that when I go to Emmitsburg in June, that I will get to go there and see that fire truck myself! I can hardly wait!
