Firefighter Dayna reads her children's fire safety book, Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog, and shares a presentation. Children can sing along as they learn about the sound and importance of smoke alarms, having an escape map and how often to practice home exit drills, and watch as Molly demonstrates crawling low under the smoke. After the program, meet Firefighter Dayna, pet Molly the Fire Safety Dog, meet Aurora's Firefighters and tour the Aurora Regional Fire Museum's interactive exhibits. Kids receive a Molly the Fire Safety Dog trading card to take home.
