Wouldn’t your kids love to get a ride to school in a fire truck? Boy, would they be the talk of the entire school day!

That’s the great prize awaiting two lucky winners of a fire-preparedness contest going on right now, hosted by the Webster and West Webster volunteer fire departments.

Part of being prepared in case of a fire in your home is creating an escape plan, and practicing it with the whole family. For the contest, students are asked to make a drawing depicting their home escape plan, then submit it to the WVFD Facebook page.

Here are the details:

  1. Entries will be by students currently in grades Kindergarten through 5th grade.
  2. Students must live in Webster and attend school in the Webster district.
  3. Entries will consist of a drawing of an escape plan of the student’s home. For ideas on how to do this, click here.
  4. Entries must have the student’s first and last name, school, current grade in school, home address, and parent’s contact information on the back.
  5. Submit drawings via private message to the Webster Volunteer Fire Department Facebook page or bring the submission to our open house at 35 South Ave on Saturday, October 26 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (during the Trick-or-Treat Trail in the village).
  6. Two winners will be picked at random, one from the Webster Fire Department district and one from the West Webster Fire Department district.

Entries must be received by midnight on October 27, and the ride to school will be held the first week of November.

And even if your student doesn’t win, just thinking about, planning and practicing an escape plan in case of a fire in your home makes everyone a winner.
