Quincy, Mass.—March 18 marks the 60th birthday of Sparky the Fire Dog, the official mascot of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), who has been teaching children, parents and teachers on fire prevention and public safety for the past six decades.
To kick-off this year-long celebration, today, the NFPA is launching a “Voice of Sparky” contest to find one special firefighter to be the voice behind this iconic Dalmatian spokesdog.
From Feb. 1 through Feb. 16, career and volunteer firefighters as well as other fire department employees can submit videos of themselves giving their best Sparky impersonation on www.nfpa.org/SparkysBirthday.
A panel of NFPA judges will select three finalists, and America will get to choose the winner by voting for their favorite video submission on Sparky’s new Facebook page, www.facebook.com/SparkyTheFireDog, between Feb. 21 and Feb. 28.
