For The Kids
The official Sparky.org website allows kids to explore and learn about fire safety in a safe and interactive environment. The popular ad-free site features sections for children of all ages, even providing voice-overs for younger children who cannot read yet. The diverse activities range from a fire truck section, cartoons, family activities, seasonal Sparky e-cards for kids to send to friends and family, and parent and educator information
Watch NFPA’s interview with Fire Safety Educator, Becki White, who trains fire departments in Minnesota on how to teach different audiences about fire safety. White also talks about the use of many NFPA materials for Fire Prevention Week, as well as NFPA’s Sparky® the Fire Dog mascot.
Lesson Plans & Resources can be found through Nation Fire Protection Association, Firewise Communities and Fire Prevention Canada. Along with these resources, the Bridgetown Volunteer Fire Department does keep some Fire Prevention materials on hand, year round, for all ages. We are able to do tours, demonstrations and presentations upon request. Please use the Contact Us section for more information. We would ask that you contact us at least 2 weeks in advance to arrange anything as firefighters may have to take time off work for these presentations
