Sparky celebrates town and smoke alarm safety

title

By Lisa Braxton

Sparky the Fire Dog® loves a celebration, especially when he can combine fun with sharing the important message of fire safety. That was the case September 20th when he participated in the 250th Anniversary Grand Parade for the town of Sharon, Massachusetts.

Sharon, which became a town in 1765, is celebrating all year long. So far, the commemoration has included an arts and music festival, bike tour, anniversary ball, a community service project, a historic walking tour, and triathlon.

During the parade, Sparky rode a float, which was sponsored by the Sharon Fire Department.

He reminded the public of the importance of having working smoke alarms in the home and also made time to hang out with New England Patriot’s mascot, Pat Patriot.
