The Fairfield Fire Department will hold its annual "Fire Safety Poster Contest" for grades K through 6 again this year. Flyers will be distributed to each of the schools on Monday October 6 announcing the contest and this year's theme. Each of the students will be given the rest of that week and the weekend to finish the posters. The posters will be due at their schools on Monday by October 15. Fire department personnel will come to the school and judge the posters and announce the winners that day. A first place ribbon will be placed on the winning poster. Several other posters will receive honorable mention ribbons and all other will receive participation ribbons. Each poster will receive a ribbon. We will leave all posters at the school to display as they see fit. As we have done in the past we will have a winner from each school building. Sometime during the week of Oct.20 through Oct 24 the winners and their teacher, if available will be picked up at their respective school building and taken for a short ride on the fire truck. Firefighters will then serve breakfast to the winners and their teachers at a fire station. We will check for allergies and a potential menu for the breakfast with the teacher and or the parents of the students. We also will encourage the parents to join us for breakfast. It usually makes for a great photo opportunity for the child and teacher.
