Firefighter Sam


As a fire safety educator, it is not often that you hear of the impact that your efforts have made. A couple of weeks ago, I received a note from Todd, father of four year old Sam. "Firefighter Sam" loves all things firefighting and he is a huge fan of PBS KIDS Sprout's Fireman Sam. At the end of each Fireman Sam segment, PBS KIDS Sprout airs fire safety tips with Sparkles, Spanner and myself on Sprout on Demand. It turns out that Firefighter Sam's dad found us on the web one day and we have been corresponding ever since.

Sam and his family are helping us with an exciting project that we can't wait to reveal very soon. They are excited about assisting us promote fire safety, and for that, we are very grateful!

In return for our gratitude, Sparkles, Spanner and I sent Sam a token of our appreciation. You can see more pictures on Sam's blog. I have got to tell you that Sam has one incredible blog!

Thank you to you, Sam, and your family for helping keep everyone fire safe!
