title

By LisaMarie Sinatra

Sparky the Fire Dog is celebrating Earth Day today and throughout the month of April. He’s partnered with NFPA’s Firewise Communities Program to develop a great checklist that parents and kids can do together to help protect their homes from wildfire. By checking off everything on the list you will be helping to protect animals, trees, plants and your home!

To get started, you’ll need a(n):

  • Earth Smarts Checklist
  • Rake
  • Broom
  • Watering can
  • Lawn bags

Next, grab your family members and head outside to work on your checklist! If you can, ask your neighbors and friends to get involved, too. And don’t forget, take a picture of yourself in action! Share with our Firewise audience how you and your family are working together to help reduce your risk of wildfire damage in your neighborhood and keeping the earth clean and safe for all of us!
