Digital Fire Day

Celebrate the 131st anniversary of the Great Seattle Fire with MOHAI and the Seattle Fire Department at this free, family-friendly, virtual event sponsored by Amazon (with optional programming in Spanish).

Your young firefighters-in-training will love learning fire safety tips, making crafts at home, participating in online story time with a real Seattle firefighter, and watching other fun videos!

Digital Fire Day Live

Tune in live from 10 am to 1 pm on the Seattle Fire Department’s Facebook page!

See how our Seattle firefighters put on their safety equipment, take a digital tour of a fire engine, and explore what it takes to become a firefighter. You’ll have the chance to learn fire safety and prevention tips from the Seattle Fire Department, make a paper fire truck or fire dog puppet, and even participate in a special live digital Firefighter Story Time.
