Let’s Have a Safe New Year!

Hi, boys and girls!
2011 is a brand new year, and I cannot wait to get started helping teach fire safety!
Do you have any goals for the new year? Goals are always fun to make. Here are some of my goals that I wanted to share:
1) Start my own safety show
One of the things that am going to do this year is host my very own fire safety show. My safety show will be streamed live on the Web as well as when I travel. Join me and my friends as we share fun ways to stay safe. There will be special appearances by the fire safety dogs and safety friends of the two and four-legged type. We will also have free downloadable activity sheets and coloring pages. Isn’t that exciting? You can even send me a picture that you colored or drew and hopefully it will be shown live on the Web!
For those of you boys and girls who will be going to the Fire Department Instructors Conference in Indianapolis, I hope to be there with my friends at firelife.com. I would love to meet you and share a free coloring page that I made just for you. If you are lucky, maybe you can even be on our safety show when we stream live on the Web. I love meeting all of the firefighters and their families, and I hope to meet you!
3) Learn more tricks that will help me be a better fire safety dog

Being a fire safety dog takes a lot of hard work, but I love learning new things, don’t you? I have been busy learning some new tricks. I can now stop, drop, and roll! If your clothes ever catch fire, stop where you are, drop to the ground, and roll over and over until the flames go out. It is so much fun learning new things and learning how to share with boys and girls just like you how to be safe.

4) A friend is helping me translate my children’s book, Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog, into Spanish. I can’t wait! I will be sure to let you know when it comes out. 

5) Last but not least, my most important goal is to stay safe and to practice fire safety every day!

These are just of few of my goals. What are some of yours? For the first one of you to send me an e-mail with a list of your goals, I will send you your very own pawtographed copy of Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog* (be sure to ask your parents first!). Good luck!

Firefighter Dayna took this picture of me this week. I’ve been really busy working on my Web sites and some fire safety activity sheets. If you would like to get your very own free coloring sheets, be sure to go to my Web site at

Let’s have some fun! Here’s a picture of my friend Tango. Can you find him?



Fire Safety Tip!

Get out and stay out! Should your house ever catch on fire, be sure to get out and stay out. Don’t go back in for your favorite toy, your favorite jacket, or anything!


Here is the latest coloring page that I received! Thank you, Muna, 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!
Would you like to send a picture to me? Send it to me at sparkles@sparklesthefiresafetydog.com  and I will share it here on the Kids Zone!

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