FirePup program help needed

June 28, 2007

The Eudora Fire Department and the National Fire Safety Council are turning to members of the community for help in sponsoring fire safety education materials in the "Fire Pup" program, specifically targeted to children. The materials are distributed in schools, safety fairs, public safety presentations and fire stations.

The materials include 24-page activity manuals, pamphlets on smoke detectors, fire escapes, baby sitting, badges, stickers and other items used to teach the fundamentals of fire safety and burn prevention.

Costs to sponsor materials for the students in the community range from $50 to $500, depending on the number of children sponsored.

Supporters of the program will have their contributions acknowledged and specifically named on the prestige page of all fire safety activity manuals under the heading "Provided as a Public Service By People Who Care."

Checks should be made payable by July 6 to National Fire Safety Council Federal Tax ID#38-2292422 and mailed to: Fire Pup Program, Eudora Fire Department, P.O. Box 650, Eudora 66025.

For more information, call Deputy Fire Chief Randy Ates at 542-3653 or visit the Web site at
