NFPA’s new children’s videos highlight family projects to reduce wildfire risk

By LisaMarie Sinatra

I’m really happy to announce three new children’s videos from NFPA’s Wildland Fire Operations Division.

The videos, “Sparky’s Wildfire Safety Home Projects for Kids and Parents,” “Sparky’s Neighborhood Wildfire Safety Tips for Families” and “Sparky and NFPA’s Wildfire Safety Checklist” feature NFPA’s spokesdog, Sparky the Fire Dog® who teaches young children the importance of wildfire safety.

Each video provides a fun and easy way parents and children can work together to help reduce the risk of wildfire damage to their homes and around their neighborhoods.

The videos complement other youth-related wildfire information including interactive games, quizzes and artwork, and teaching materials. And don’t forget, you can share these videos and other great resources with family and friends!

For more information and to watch all three videos, visit NFPA’s wildfire “information for youth and families” web page.
