As part of this year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign, the Pembroke Pines Fire Department invites students from Kindergarten to Fifth grade to participate in our Annual Fire Prevention Week Poster Contest.
The theme for Fire Prevention Week, held October 8 – 14, 2023, by the official sponsor, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), is “Cooking safety starts with YOU. Pay attention to fire prevention.” This year's theme works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe when cooking.
According to the NFPA Cooking fires are the leading cause of home fires and home fire injuries. Unattended cooking is the leading cause of cooking fires and death.
Students will be asked to create a poster poster or diorama illustrating fire safety while cooking or kitchen safety. Displays will be judged on originality and must contain the Fire Prevention Week theme.
The winning displays will be showcased at Pembroke Pines City Hall during Fire Prevention Week from October 9-18, 2023, and the winners will be acknowledged at the Commission Meeting on Wednesday, October 18, 2023.
