InstantAR is like magic! It uses your phone’s camera and web browser to bring digital animations into the real world. No apps, no downloads – just instant fun and learning!

How It Works:

  1. Scan the QR Code: Use your phone to scan the special QR code.
  2. Watch the Magic Unfold: Digital animations come to life on your screen, videos play and other family activities to teach fire safety.
  3. Learn Through Play: Kids practice fire safety drills like crawling under smoke and so much more – when things are fun, learning is easier.
  4. Just Hand It Out: It’s super easy, you hand out the QR code, and it does the rest. 

Here's The Free Experience

1. Families Scan the QR code


2. They Choose a Fire Safety Experience

The experiences are designed to be fun, unique, and educational, covering three key areas:

Prevent, React, and Survive. We aim to make fire safety a blast for families.


3. They Have Fun & Get Smart about Fire Safety


Families learn about fire safety through engaging interactions with real firefighters at the event and a virtual Dalmatian named Spot. Creating memorable moments Kids can take a group photo or a selfie high fiving the digital dog during the event and anytime afterward.


Families learn how to test their smoke detector batteries through the fun and interactive Battery Boogie. An animated detector teaches the steps by pushing his own nose, then jumping to press an invisible detector on the ceiling. Making the process  memorable and engaging. 


Families learn how to safely escape a home fire by dropping below the smoke where the air is safer and exiting the house by crawling. This experience features digital billowing smoke, allowing kids to practice crawling under the smoke to safety. They Get Low and Go!


Families learn how to prevent kitchen fires by maintaining a safe distance between items and the stove. This experience shows the 3-foot safety zone around their stove, helping to prevent fires by keeping items at a safe distance from the stove.
