Fire department headquarters in Sparks, Nevada, was the place to be for the kickoff Saturday for Fire Prevention Week activities. A pancake breakfast was one of the highlights of the open house.

There was plenty of educational material to go around with the department’s purchase of FPW in a Box. Sparks Fire Marshal Bob King is pictured below at right with Sparky the Fire Dog® and NFPA Public Education Regional Education Specialist Jeff Donahue.
