In 1984, 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 very successful tool for the Marion Fire Department to use in teaching young children about fire safety.
