Invite Author Dayna Hilton and Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog into your classroom or library to video chat via Skype!


Teachers~

Imagine your students meeting a real fire safety dog!

Invite Author Dayna Hilton and Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog into your classroom or library to video chat via Skype!

During this fun, educational one hour program, your students will meet a real fire safety dog, listen to Firefighter Dayna read one of her children’s fire safety books, sing fire safety songs along with Sparkles and be sworn in as Jr. Firefighters by Sparkles and Firefighter Dayna!

Want to know how Sparkles became a fire safety dog or what a typical day is like at the fire station? The program will also include a question and answer time in which your students can ask these questions and more!

Have special needs? We can help meet those needs! Your presentation will be adapted to the age of your students so that appropriate fire safety educational messages will be shared. If multiple classes are grouped together for a presentation, it is suggested that the students are close in age.

The one hour program includes:

• Introduction of Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog
• Sparkles’ story via Power Point
• Video of Sparkles demonstrating how to crawl low under smoke
• Selected reading
• Singing of fire safety song
• Jr. Firefighter Oath
• Q & A

Students will learn four valuable fire safety messages that will help keep them
and their family fire safe. These messages include:

• Recognizing the firefighter as a helper and a friend
• Knowing the sound and purpose of a smoke alarm
• Understanding the importance of practicing a home fire drill using an escape map
• Knowing when and how to crawl low under smoke
