Help us celebrate Sparky’s 65th birthday by joining us for a special ‘Happy Birthday’ Thunderclap!

Sparky the Fire Dog was created for NFPA in 1951 and has been our official mascot and spokesdog ever since. He is a widely recognized fire safety icon that is beloved by children and adults alike. Millions have learned about fire safety through Sparky’s educational lessons and materials. We think it is therefore only fitting, that we plan something special. Sparky deserves a big celebration to honor his 65th birthday on March 18th.

If you have not yet heard about Thunderclap – it’s simple and fun! Just visit our Thunderclap site, and register with your Twitter or Facebook account. That’s all! Then, on March 18th, on every account that has been registered, an automatic “Happy Birthday” message will post, so that we can all share our birthday wishes at the same time.

We hope you will join in on the fun, and make Sparky’s 65th (or 455th in dog years!) a special day!
