Poster Contest


 

What is the Fire District 3 Fire Safety Poster Contest?


    October 6th - 12th has been nationally recognized as 2019's “Fire Prevention Week”. Historically within fire departments across the United States, this week has been committed to the fire safety education of communities served. Fire District 3 values the importance of fire prevention education and is dedicated to teaching our community about life safety. That is why in the spirit of the national “Fire Prevention Week”, Fire District 3 is enthusiastic to give back to the community through a newly revamped event, dedicated to the education of our community’s youth. 


    The target audience this year for our education program is K - 3rd grade, ages 5-10, for all elementary schools within Battle Ground and Hockinson. The education we created parallels the 2019 National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) fire safety theme: "Not every hero wears a cape. Plan and practice your escape!" Utilizing a multifaceted educational approach, our program focuses on teaching children how to plan, create, practice, and execute a home evacuation plan. Understanding that all children learn differently, the creation of this approach was based upon the concept of accommodating the four major learning styles: visual, auditory, reading/writing and kinesthetic



Student Expectations:


    Students will be expected to watch the "2019 Fire District 3 Poster Contest" educational video listed below. This video depicts a step-by-step guide how to create an NFPA approved home evacuation plan. On October 8th, teachers will provide each student with an official Fire District 3 11” x 17” poster canvas. Students are to take this poster canvas home and creatively/colorfully construct an evacuation plan of their residence. Equally as important, with the help of parents/guardians, students must physically check all home smoke detectors and practice the evacuation plan they have drawn on their canvases. Submissions will only be valid if a parent or guardian signs the completed poster, verifying that these practical tasks have been completed. Remember, practice evacuating each room like it is an actual emergency because it someday might be! 



Poster Grading:


    Poster submissions will be graded on following directions, a depiction of knowledge/understanding of the fire safety message, creativity, neatness, proper spelling, color usage, and thinking outside the box! Once submitted, Fire District 3 firefighters will pick a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner for each participating grade of each school. There also will be a “best in district grand prize” chosen for the most outstanding kindergarten, first, second, and third grade art piece submission. The winners of the “best in district grand prize” awards will be presented by the Fire Chief and Mayor of Battle Ground at a Battle Ground city council meeting on a TBA date in November. Pictures of the winning submissions will be posted on the Fire District 3 social media accounts and the canvas hard copies will be posted within the walls of the Fire District 3 stations.

Community Involvement:


    This year's Fire District 3 Fire Safety Poster Contest success is largely due to our wonderful community support. We are proud to say that many local businesses of Hockinson and Battle Ground generously endorsed this event, sponsoring the "best in district grand prizes". Due to their donations, we were able to elevate this educational event to a new level and most importantly teach our children to be prepared and fire safe.
