Firefighter Dayna and Tango the Fire Safety Dog at the Aurora Regional Fire Museum
Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at 6:30 PM (CDT)
Firefighter and nationally recognized fire safety expert, Dayna Hilton, known as “Firefighter Dayna” to millions of children and their caregivers, will be at the Aurora Regional Fire Museum on October 4th with her four-legged companion, Tango the Fire Safety Dog.
The museum and event will be the backdrop for their safety show, Sparkles’ Safety Spot, which will be live streamed on the web to children all across the country.
Hilton will read her critically acclaimed award-winning children’s fire safety book, Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog, and share her presentation that has been credited with helping save the lives of seven children and two adults. Children will delight in singing along with Firefighter Dayna as they learn about recognizing the sound and importance of smoke alarms as well as making and having an escape map. Children will also learn how often to practice home exit drills and watch as Tango demonstrates crawling low under the smoke. Firefighters from the Aurora Fire Department will participate in the program and will share with the children how firefighters are their friends and are there to help them.
After the program, guests will have the opportunity to meet Firefighter Dayna, pet Tango the Fire Safety Dog, meet the Aurora Firefighters and tour the Aurora Regional Fire Museum's interactive exhibits. Children will receive a Jr. Firefighter Certificate and Tango the Fire Safety Dog trading card, to take home courtesy of First Alert.
Doors to the Aurora Regional Fire Museum will open at 6:30pm and the program begins promptly at 7:00pm. The event is hosted by the Aurora Regional Fire Museum, in cooperation with the Aurora Fire Department, and sponsored by First Alert and the Keep Kids Fire Safe Foundation.
