FIRE PREVENTION WEEK - OCTOBER 3 - 9, 2021 

LEARN THE SOUNDS OF FIRE SAFETY 

The 2021 Fire Prevention Week focuses on the different sounds and alerts that safety devices make when there is a fire or carbon monoxide hazard. Knowing the unique noises the alarm makes – a beeping sound or a chirping sound – means it is time to take action!

Fire Prevention Week was held October 3rd to 9th, 2021 with the theme of “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety” which encouraged everyone to know the distinct sounds their smoke and/or carbon monoxide alarm makes, and what to do if they hear one of these sounds.

Elementary students across the Province Kindergarden to Grade 4 were encouraged to participate in Fire Prevention Week and submit an entry form for a chance to win a $200.00 Gift Card.

In total, 526 students submitted an entry form and one entry per grade level was randomly selected. The Province of Manitoba, the Office of the Fire Commissioner, Portage Mutual Insurance, and the Firefighters’ Burn Fund wish to congratulate the winner in each of the following schools:

  • Kindergarden – Sagkeeng Elementary – Pine Falls
  • Grade 1 – Hazel M. Kellington School – Neepawa
  • Grade 2 – Benito School – Benito
  • Grade 3 – Niverville Elementary – Niverville
  • Grade 4 – Happy Thought School – East Selkirk

Thanks to everyone who participated and stay tuned for other future contests!
