The Firepup® Puppet Makes a Great Teaching Tool

The Firepup® Puppet was created in the research and development department of National Fire Safety Council, Inc. During development, NFSC contacted Jim Hensen of Children’s Television Workshop (Sesame Street, Muppets, etc.). Mr. Hensen offered the services of his head designer Bonnie Erikson who spent several days at NFSC helping us fine tune mouth construction and character development.

Newspaper articles showing how departments are utilizing the Firepup® puppet in their fire safety programs appear locally and nationwide.

The Firepup® puppet has been distributed throughout the United States through schools and fire departments. Our goal is to place a Firepup® puppet in every grade of every school, especially Kindergarten and First grades.
