Winkler the Fire Sprinkler is designed with a special tribute to the Boone children; Alexis, Charlotte, Katie and Wes. Look closely to find their initials within Winkler, it is a way for us to remember them and hope that with education we can prevent future tragedies. Alexis, Charlotte, Katie and Wes died in a house fire in Annapolis, Maryland in 2015, along with their grandparents Don and Sandy Pyle, and today we honor their memory by helping other children learn about fires and the difference that fire sprinklers make. A special thank you to their aunt, Sher Grogg, for becoming a Common Voices advocate and dedicating herself to educating others that fire is fast, and fire sprinklers are needed.
Michael Furman, the creator, author and illustrator of the Flash Max Fire Safety Superhero character and children's fire safety outreach program, is also a firefighter.With 33 total years of both career and volunteer fire service experience with the Fairfax County Fire Rescue Department (Va.), and the La Plata Volunteer Fire Department (Md.), he has combined his creative abilities and artistic talent with his passion for fire prevention, life safety and public speaking to give a superhero boost to fire prevention in a fun, engaging and interactive platform! Flash Max packs a punch to arch-rival 'Blaze', who personifies fire in the home, by encouraging families to install and regularly
test their home's smoke alarms, like his superhero partner shield, 'Al-Arm Smoke Alarm', and regularly practice a home the fire escape plan together. Flash Max has also teamed up with the crew at UL to reinforce their 'Close Before You Doze' campaign
and parallel message with his other superhero friend, 'Zoor the Door,' who acts like a friendly, bedroom security guard in the home, protecting
you from heat and smoke, giving you extra time for egress. Newly added, fire-quenching friend 'Winkler the Fire Sprinkler' completes Flash Max's dynamic fire safety superhero team by encouraging families to install home fire sprinkler systems, which delay flashover, yielding further time for escape!
