Fire Prevention Week

FPW 2018

Fire Prevention Week is observed each year during the week of October 9 in commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire, October 8, 1871, that caused devastating damage. During Fire Prevention Week (FPW), children, adults, and teachers learn how to stay safe in case of a fire. This year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, “Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere,” works to educate people 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.

Schertz Fire Rescue will be holding its annual Poster Contest in recognition of Fire Prevention Week and is open to all students in the K-2, 3-4, 5-6 grade levels.

Official Rules:

  • Poster must include items from this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme, “Look, Listen, Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere.” It may also include additional fire safety themes, i.e., E.D.I.T.H., Stop Drop and Roll, Get Out and Stay Out
  • All entries shall be on white poster board between 11" x 14" and 22" x 28". Original artwork only
  • One poster per student. Posters become property of Schertz Fire Rescue and may be put on display
  • Students first and last name, grade, school, and teacher's name MUST be written on the back of the poster to be considered
  • No live matched shall be used on poster

Deadline and Judging:

  • Posters are due to main office of school no later that end of day on October 10. 
  • Posters will be judged and top 3 selected from each grade level grouping


  • Trophies will be awarded to the top 3 from each grade level grouping
  • Winners will be announced at the Schertz City Council on October 23.
