Sparky, Fire Departments, y el Hospital Shriners "Forme un equipo" para la conciencia de la quemadura Semana

Por Kelly Ransdell

To commemorate National Burn Awareness Week, patients at the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital in Springfield Massachusetts were visited by local firefighters, Sparky the Fire Dog, Springfield Falcon’s mascot Screech, as well as representatives from the Massachusetts State Fire Marshal. Firefighters from Hatfield and Hadley did not come to the hospital empty-handed. The Hatfield firefighters brought in $750 that they raised for the hospital, while the Hadley firefighters brought in a large box of donated toys for the children.

During the visit to the hospital, Sparky had many photo opts with parents and children while firefighters gave safety tips on preventing burns. NFPA works with the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors to provide resources and outreach on fire and burns. The Scald Prevention Safety tip sheet is a great item to have in your toolkit while doing outreach in your community. A big thanks to the Firefighters in Massachusetts for this wonderful event.
