Museum of Firefighting’s Virtual Dalmatian Day 2020

Due to Covid-19, the FASNY Museum of Firefighting’s Dalmatian Day event is going VIRTUAL. On Saturday, October 17, the museum will have many activities planned online, including a livestream, an online auction, exciting Dalmatian and dog-themed products in the online shop, fun photos and videos about Dalmatians, various entertainment, and of course, fire safety!

There will be a live Q&A session with Molly the Museum Dog: type in your questions during this session and learn all about this local celebrity. There will be a virtual visit to the firehouse that you will not want to miss! Molly will also show you her athletic side during her agility program. Lots of other Dalmatians will be dropping in from all over the world to say “hi,”, and we will also host some great entertainers during the program. Enjoy story time live with Molly the Museum Dog, as she shares a tale from the firehouse with you. Most importantly, Molly will present multiple fire safety education programs for the viewers. We believe teaching fire safety and prevention is crucial to the safety and well-being of the children in our community, and the US Fire Administration (USFA) agrees. This agency found that fire setting, which children often do out of curiosity, can be curtailed in a community by providing fire safety education for children throughout the year. Virtual Dalmatian Day will help us to teach and reinforce fire safety and prevention concepts, which in turn will make our children and our community safer.

DATE/TIMESaturday, October 17, 2020 / 10am
