Fire safety can be a daunting topic, especially for young learners. But with the help of Sparky the Fire Dog®, the friendly mascot and official spokesdog of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), anyone can learn how to make a difference in keeping their home safe and fire free!

In honor of Sparky’s 71st birthday, we’re teaming up with the NFPA to launch a new collection of kahoots that introduce learners to the essential steps of practicing fire safety in an engaging and interactive way!

The NFPA is the leading information and knowledge resource on fire, electrical and related hazards in the U.S., offering educational programs and tools for learners of all ages. Since 1951, Sparky the Fire Dog® has been on a mission to help teach kids and their families life-saving lessons about preventing fires at home, providing a learning environment for kids to explore, as well as resources for educators. Now, this famous dalmatian is bringing his dogged determination to Kahoot!.

With the NFPA’s new collection on Kahoot! Academy, you and your family or students can learn about creating a home fire escape plan, how a smoke detector can help keep us safe and what simple steps we can all take at home to prevent fires from starting. Playing these kahoots can help spark engagement during a fire safety unit in the classroom, or as preparation or review before or after a fire drill.
