AP Wire | 10/30/2005 | Pittsburgh to disband fire unit that inspects alarms, sprinklers 'If I can prevent the pain and agony someone goes through to survive a fire, it's worth my effort,' said Floyd McCrea, the bureau's education officer.
McCrea has been the department's most powerful messenger for fire prevention in the last 10 years. As Sparky the Dog, McCrea has donned a Dalmatian costume, complete with helmet, to teach elementary school children how to escape from a burning home.
Neighborhood groups would like the bureau not to send Sparky away."
