Maddi de la Cruz
In 2004, six-year-old Maddi de la Cruz of Chicago was burned by a sparkler that ignited her shoe. In a matter of seconds, the sparkler created second-and third-degree burns on Maddi’s foot. Her mother, Michelle Maloney, said Maddi was injured during a Fourth of July celebration attended by children and eight adults. The young girl underwent skin graft surgery to help her regain her ability to walk.
Summer Fire Safety
Winter Fire Safety
It’s winter! The days are shorter, the outside temperature is lower, and in some places it’s cold, icy, and snowy. No matter where you live, winter brings a change in season and a time to think about home heating safety. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has developed safety tips and a fun family activity to help you stay safe. Download Sparky's home heating safety checklist (PDF, 249 KB) and hang it on your refrigerator to remind every member of your family to stay safe and warm this (and every!) winter.

Wildland Fire Safety
Home fires, and the injuries and deaths that result, are not rare and isolated events. Home fires happen in communities all over the country, every day. They're deadly, and they're costly. And they can change the lives of families forever. But they're not unavoidable. Home fires and fire deaths can be prevented.
Fire and Life Safety
Keeping Your Community Safe and Sound
Smoke alarms can mean the difference between life and death in a fire. Working smoke alarms cut the chance of dying in a fire in half. Smoke alarms detect and alert people to fire in its early stages, giving them the time needed to escape safety.
