2019 OAFC Fire Prevention Month Contest - Will Fightfire & Fiona Firesafety Want You to Know Your Way Out!

During Fire Prevention Month, Will Fightfire & Fiona Firesafety wants Ontario's families to know how to escape their home in the event of an emergency!  

Will Fightfire, Fiona Firesafety, and friends are fun educational characters that take a firm approach to fire safety and education. They are quickly becoming a trusted source for fire safety information and messaging, and are becoming recognizable figures that kids and adults can find in their communities. Last year, all Will Fightfire and Friends products purchased by Ontario fire departments for fire prevention month in October, or provided through the Lowe's-First Alert Canada public education/fire prevention store events, received contest entry forms to distribute during fire prevention community events! 

This year, Will Fightfire and Fiona Firesafety want kids to know the importance of smoke and CO alarms, and how to escape their home in an emergency!

The 2019 contest will focus on escape planning. It will comprise of two fire escape planning maps, one in a premade home, and one for the child to draw their own home and escape route. The contest will be run throughout fire prevention month, with all entries submitted back to the OAFC office by November 22, 2019. The child with the winning name (which will be drawn) will receive a special prize package, including: a fire safety gift pack, a $500 cash prize, and a customized offer from you – the local fire department – which could include a fire station tour, a ride in a fire truck, and/or being a fire chief for a day. The contest runs from October 1 to November 22, 2019.
