The Nevada State Fire Marshal, in coordination with the Fire Prevention Association of Nevada
(FPAN) and participating Fire Departments statewide, are excited to announce the winners of the second
annual State of Nevada Fire Prevention Week Poster Contest.
This year’s National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Look. Listen.
Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere,” works to educate about three basic but essential steps to take to
reduce the likelihood of having a fire and how to escape safely in the event of one. National Fire Prevention
Week is October 7 - 13, 2018. Applicants statewide in three grade categories submitted their artwork based on the campaign theme. The posters of the first place winners of each of the categories will be featured on billboards in the Elko, Reno/Sparks, Carson City and Las Vegas areas. Each winner will also receive a plaque from the Nevada State Fire Marshal, a certificate from FPAN, and recognition from the NFPA. Artwork may also be used in publications, exhibits, displays and on websites to promote fire safety and education.  “We are excited to have received so many creative posters from across Nevada,” said State Fire Marshal Chief Bart Chambers, “Contests like these help to promote fire safety education with students who will take information from the classroom to their homes and help keep their community fire safe. Congratulations to the winners, to all students and schools, and the local Fire Departments for the outstanding artwork and for helping to promote such an important message.” To learn more about the winners visit the Nevada State Fire Marshal website.
