Recently, I read an article sharing that the Fire Museum of Memphis received grants to update their museum. This is Part 2 of the series on the Fire Museum of Memphis and what they are doing to enhance their fire safety efforts (read Part 1 here).
As I mentioned in Part 1, I packed up the SpotMobile with my spotted companion, Molly (the Fire Safety Dog) and we headed to Memphis to learn more. Thanks to General Manager Penny Smith, Molly and I were greeted with open arms at the museum, as the Fire Safety Dogs had been before her (Sparkles, Siren and Tango). We interviewed Chris Stephens, a firefighter with the Memphis Fire Department, who recently joined the staff at the Fire Museum. Chris shared with us the upcoming plans for the museum as well as giving a tour. Penny was gracious to let us to share the footage with the readers of the Playing it Safe blog.
Should you have a fire museum or library in your area, Molly and I would be happy to Skype with your guests at your museum or library free of charge. We would also love to Skype with your Fire Department should you wish. Please visit https://education.skype.com/partners/54-fire-safety-dogs to learn more about our program, supported by our corporate partners, First Alert and State Farm.
And speaking of Fire Museums, Molly and I will be at the Aurora Regional Fire Museum on October 2 for an event of fire safety and fun. Should you live in the Chicagoland area, we’d love to see you! Tickets are free, but are limited, so get your tickets today!
