Sparky talks to Antiliano Estrella of the Providence, RI Fire Department about his job as a firefighter.


We have been working on a fire safety unit.  Every year, children start nearly 100,000 fires that hurt people or cause a lot of damage.  That's why playing with fire, matches, lighters, or candles is not a good idea. You are going to have the opportunity to save the lives of other students.  You will imagine that you are a firefighter and your job is to provide others with fire safety tips and steps to take if their clothes catch on fire or if there is a fire in their home.
