I am the Fire Prevention Officer for the Smithfield Fire Department and we got a early start on our Fire Prevention week. We have ordered all of our supplies and received them in less than a week. The banners will be going on up in the front of our stations next week. The local Boy Scout troop comes in on their meeting night to help us stuff the bags for all the children in our town which is a great help. We have our annual open house scheduled for October 14, where we open our headquarters station to the public for station tours, demonstrations, bouncy houses, rock climbing wall, a tumble bus for the little kids, pizza and soda.
I am looking for idea for our annual contest in the schools. We have a pizza party with the firefighters for one class in each elementary school. We are trying to get all the kids involved. We have done drawing contests and essay contests. I would like to know if anyone else does this and what they do.
