Poster Contest Breakfast


The Auburn Fire-Rescue Department will be hosting its annual poster contest breakfast Wednesday November 19, 2014 at 8:30 A.M.

Every year the AFRD conducts a fire safety poster contest through the public schools for grades 1-5. The goal of the contest is to have children reflect the fire prevention theme of the year in a poster, this years theme is "Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives. Test Yours Every Month!". This contest helps reinforce the important fire safety messages firefighters teach too the children in the classroom.

Each year in November the AFRD hosts a poster contest breakfast for the grade winners and overall winner of the poster contest. The overall winner receives a new bicycle.

Posters in the past were judged by a group of firefighters based on the message and artistry. This year the AFRD picked 30 posters to post on Facebook for the community to vote on.  Voting was open from Tuesday 11/11/14 to Friday 11/14/14 at 10:00 A.M.  The winners will be announced at the poster contest breakfast on Wednesday November 19, 2014 at 8:30 A.M.  Media is welcomed at this event.
