Change Your Clock, Change Your Battery

Hi boys and girls!

Remind the folks that you live with that it is time to change their smoke alarm battery. This is also a great time to practice your home escape drill!

Johnson County RFD #1 Donates 500 Copies of Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog to Clarksville Primary School

Students at Clarksville Primary School in Clarksville, Arkansas were each asked to go home and work on their escape map after a fire safety presentation at their school. Each child that made a plan and practiced their escape drill (351 students!), had a special picture made. All children were given a copy of Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog compliments of Johnson County RFD #1.

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!
