Mark your calendars now for the Sparks Fire Department 6th Annual Project SAFE Golf Fundraiser on July 19 at the beautiful Lakes Course at Red Hawk Golf Resort. The fundraiser is held to obtain funds for the purchase of life-saving smoke alarms and fire safety paraphernalia for eligible older homes in the city of Sparks.  This program started in 2007 as an educational program focusing on the importance of working smoke alarms in the home.


Through the funding of a Federal Grant and previous year’s Golf Fundraisers, Sparks Fire has been able to purchase and install nearly 3,000 smoke alarms in over 1,000 eligible homes since 2010.  Sparks Fire Marshal Bob King said "Our goal is to reach the 1,300 home mark in 2015.  We are making every effort to continue this program until we have installed new smoke alarms in all city of Sparks homes over 10 years old."


Sparks Fire is looking for players, sponsors and raffle and silent auction donations. More information and registrations forms are available on line at  Project SAFE Golf Fundraiser or by contacting Fire Marshal Bob King at (775)  353-2261 or (775) 353-2396.
