National Fire Safety Poster Campaign
Help your community stay safe from fire and win prizes!
October 6–12, 2019 is Fire Prevention Week. Each year, the Aboriginal Firefighters Association of Canada (AFAC) launches our national Poster Campaign to coincide with the theme of Fire Prevention Week. Full-time students from preschool to Grade 12 attending a Band or federally operated school are eligible to participate.
This year’s theme is: Not every hero wears a cape. Plan and Practice your Escape
Campaign details will be published mid-August to coincide with AFAC’s National Firefighting Competition. We encourage participating fire departments to get involved with their local schools.
In September packages will be mailed out to every band office and to every band and federally operated school.
To take part, students create artwork in one of five categories:
- Preschool to Grade 12 – use multimedia to create messaging on this year’s theme (this could be a video, animation, cartoon strip, photo essay—they are only limited by their imagination). Individual or group entries are allowed in this category.
- Preschool to Grade 2 – colour the provided poster.
- Grades 3 to 5 – create a poster on this year’s theme.
- Grades 6 to 8 – create a poster on this year’s theme.
- President’s Award – special needs students from preschool to grade 12 are invited to colour the provided poster or create their own art using any medium.
