Boise Fire Department

Ongoing Programs - Sparky the Mascot

These community partners will wear mascot costumes and make appearances at Boise Fire Department events and other fire prevention related events. The purpose of mascot appearances is to build fire prevention awareness among children.

Mascots are escorted by a helper/handler because it is difficult for the person in the costume to see and hear. In addition, helpers/handlers assist the mascot volunteers with putting on the costume and may provide fire safety information to the public

Applicants must be 16 years or older. The schedule varies. Community partners should have experience interacting with the public, especially children. Some shifts may require volunteers to be standing for 1-3 hours without a break. Applicants must be non-smokers only.
