  • This is the only appearances of Firefighter Frank and Chief.
  • This episode reveals that Tosha had experienced a fire at her house.
  • BJ doesn't disappear through sparkly dust in this episode. Instead, he leaves the classroom and takes Frank's firefighting bag to the truck while Chief follows him.
  • This episode reveals that Jason played by Kurt Dykhuizen can only see the fire, smell the smoke and feel the heat from the fire. Unlike hearing, as he is born deaf.
  • Jason, Tosha and BJ would make some references to this in the new content of Barney Safety.


  • Tosha mentioned that a fire had occurred at her house before Firefighter Frank's visit. However, in the new content of Barney Safety, Tosha said that Firefighter Frank's advice helped her when the fire at her house did happen. It's either a goof or another fire that could have happened at Tosha's house after this episode.
