Sparky the Fire Dog marks his 65th birthday on March 18th. Sparky is legendary. You’d be hard-pressed to find a child or adult who doesn’t know him, remember him, or recall his enduring life safety messages. For more than six decades, Sparky has worked hard to make communities safer from fire. He deserves to celebrate his milestone birthday in a big way, thus his 65th Birthday Bucket List campaign, which officially launches this week. In the coming months, Sparky will enjoy chance-of-a-lifetime excursions, must-have meetups, unforgettable learning opportunities, and cool collaborations with others who have made fire safety their mission.

Sparky recently jump-started his 65th Birthday Bucket List celebration when he ticked off two items on his wish list by riding the ice resurfacer and making his HDX screen debut during the Boston Bruin’s inaugural First Responder Night at TD Garden. The revelry will continue through Fire Prevention Week in October, and includes birthday benchmarks such as visiting the pyramids, zip lining, throwing out the first pitch at a Major League Baseball game, hanging with celebrities, meeting up with his long-time pal Smokey the Bear, going back to school, and other great experiences. Be sure to follow Sparky’s adventures on Twitter, Facebook through #Sparkys65th, and visit Sparky’s website for fire safety educational materials.
