The Missouri State Fair, held earlier this month in Sedalia, Missouri, featured hands-on activities, competitions, thrilling amusement rides, and world-class entertainment. One of the most enthusiastic participants was Sparky the Fire Dog. He played Frisbee with the kids, rode a mechanical bull, washed windows at a lemonade stand, and even climbed aboard a tractor.
Most important of all, he and his helpers provided fair goers of all ages with fire safety information on smoke alarms and escape planning.
“Sparky walked the crowd and even posed for photos with our state legislators and state police,” said Inspector/Public Education Specialist Lianne Stone with the Missouri Division of Fire Safety. Stone is also an NFPA Public Education network representative. “The state fair was a great venue for Sparky to get important information to people during the brief time that he had with them.”
