One of the Fire Safety Dogs and my all-time favorite events, is "BlogPaws." It is an amazing conference and we are happy to announce that I can finally spill the beans! I have been chosen to speak at BlogPaws 2012 in St. Lake City, Utah in June!
Being Executive Director of the Keep Kids Fire Safe Foundation is a dream come true and allows me to share the work of the foundation and the Fire Safety Dogs and to help keep children and their caregivers safe. At BlogPaws, I will be doing a presentation on live streaming and will share information on one of the foundation's most popular fire safety programs, Sparkles' Safety Spot, which is sponsored by our good friends at First Alert and is streamed live on the web.
BlogPaws has an amazing list of speakers and I can hardly wait until June!
Here is our video from intro of our presentation last year with Travelin' Jack and PetSmart! I was so happy that Tango got to go with me!
This year our trip will be sponsored by First Alert, and we are very grateful to them for their support!
See you in Salt Lake!

The Keep Kids Fire Safe® Foundation, with funding from State Farm® and First Alert®, is seeking a limited number of schools to participate in the Sparkles’ Fire Safety Skype Tour™, an innovative, free fire safety program designed to teach children what to do in case of a fire. The program will be offered for a limited time, March 2012 to March 2013.
Firefighter Dayna Hilton, recognized as one of the leading fire safety educators in the United States, has developed this 30 minute, fun, educationally sound and interactive fire safety program for children. It features meeting a real fire safety dog, reading the Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog children’s fire safety book, learning fire safety messages, singing fire safety songs and becoming a Junior Firefighter. It also includes time for children to ask a few fire safety questions.
Sparkles’ Fire Safety Skype Tour™ will be delivered to a limited number of schools via Skype. The goal of the program is to teach basic fire safety knowledge and skills to kindergarteners and first graders. For their participation, children will receive a free, downloadable copy of the Sparkles’ Fire Safety Skype Tour™ coloring e-book and other bonus materials.
Each month, up to 10 schools will be selected to participate. The Skype visits will be held each Friday of the month, beginning March 16th 1:00 CST, with each Skype visit lasting up to 30 minutes.
Applications are currently being taken, but hurry! Participating schools will be selected on a first come, first serve basis. Completed applications must be received at the Keep Kids Fire Safe® Foundation as soon as possible. For more information, visit the Keep Kids Fire Safe Foundation webpage at or by contact Hilton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep Kids Fire Safe® Foundation is a federally recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization dedicated to teaching fire safety knowledge and skills to children and their caregivers based on fire safety research. Through programs, safety materials, and strategic partnerships, the Keep Kids Fire Safe® Foundation aims to help reduce fire-related deaths, injuries, and property losses.
