In 1986, National Fire Safety Council, Inc. (NFSC) developed Firepup,® a friendly Dalmatian cartoon character, in an effort to make learning about fire and burn prevention and life safety issues, fun, entertaining, and non-threatening. Firepup® was developed to be a friendly and positive role model for children. He has proven to be a successful learning tool used by fire prevention officers and teachers across the country.
Firepup®’s image is portrayed by a cuddly hand-held puppet and a life-size costumed character. The character is treated as an auxiliary fire prevention officer by many fire departments. Many hospitals and children’s organizations use the character in their programs. Because of his good intentions and positive personality, Firepup® has become familiar to hundreds of thousands of children from all over the country who view Firepup® as a role model and trusted friend.
