Kingsport Fire Department introduces new mascot Sparky

KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) – The Kingsport Fire Department introduced its new mascot Sparky Wednesday.

The new remote control pup rides in a fire truck that looks just like those used at the fire department.

He is equipped with everything a firefighter could need, including a water spout.

Domtar donated Sparky to the fire department for community education about fire safety.

Sparky is replacing a 10-year-old mascot that has seen more than 400,000 people in its time.
