Poster Contest 

 Fire Prevention Week Poster Contest 2018

Fire Prevention Week was established to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire, the tragic 1871 fire that killed more than 250 people, left 100,000 homeless, destroyed more than 17,400 structures and burned more than 2,000 acres. The fire began on October 8, but continued into and did most of its damage on October 9, 1871.  We have the opportunity to involve Peterborough students in helping us to promote Fire Prevention week and Fire Safety and Prevention all year round. 

Contestants are challenged to exercise their creativity and submit a poster promoting one of three themes provided. The posters will be judged at the Fire Station Headquarters located at 210 Sherbrooke Street. 

Prizes will be awarded on the recommendation of the judges, whose decision will be final. On notification of having been selected as a winner and/or finalist the artist agrees to the full and exclusive non-profit use of the art work by Peterborough Fire Services

Carbon Monoxide alarms must be installed adjacent to sleeping areas in home with a fuel burning appliance and/or an attached garage.
