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 Mon., Oct. 10, 2016, announcing the contest and this year's theme. Each student will be given the rest of that week and the weekend to finish the posters. The posters will be due back to the student's teachers by Mon., Oct. 17.
Fire department personnel will come to the school and judge the posters and announce the winners that same day. A first place ribbon will be placed on the winning poster. Several other posters will receive honorable mention ribbons and all others will receive participation ribbons. Posters will be left at the school to display as the teacher's choose. Each school building will have a winner.
During the week of Oct. 24, the contest winners and their teachers will be picked up at their respective school buildings for a short ride on the fire truck to the fire station. Firefighters will then serve breakfast to the winners and their teachers. (We will check for allergies and a potential menu for the breakfast with the teacher and or the parents.) Parents are encouraged to join us for breakfast, and bring their cameras - it's a great photo opportunity with your child and the teacher and the firefighters!
