Watauga Fire Department Fire Poster Contest

Watauga Fire Department Fire Poster Contest

Watauga, Texas – The City of Watauga Fire Department will once again host a fire safety poster contest for the students K thru 5 during the month of October.

As you may know, October is nationally recognized as a fire safety month. We invite all students to participate and to have fun learning about fire safety. Lessons learned at these early ages stay with the students throughout their lives.

This year’s fire prevention theme is “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape, Plan and Practice Your Escape”. This theme focuses on what a home escape plan entails and the value of practicing it. The poster needs to be on a 12 x 9-inch manila construction paper using crayons, colored pencils, or markers. Please have the child’s name, teacher, grade level, and school on the back of each poster.

The posters will be picked up by the fire department on October 25th. The posters will be judged by the firefighters and a first, second, and third-place certificate will be issued for each school. The first-place winners will be recognized at the City of Watauga Council meeting on November 12th, 2019 at 6:30 PM in the Council Chambers located at 7105 Whitley Road.

The 1st place winners will also be given a ride to school in the fire truck with one family member. These dates will be worked out one on one with the winner’s family and the school administration.

Poster ideas and other information is available on NFPA’s website:
