The Victoria Fire Department recently conducted a Fire Prevention Poster Contest at local and area schools in observance of National Fire Prevention Week. City and County-Wide First-place winners of the poster contest were honored and recognized at an awards ceremony held on Friday, October 7, 2022 at the Victoria Community Center. This year, Fire Prevention Week is October 9-15, 2022.
Poster Contest Winners
Congratulations to the first place winners of the Victoria Fire Department’s 2022 Fire Prevention Poster Contest. This year’s theme was "Fire Won't Wait. Plan Your Escape" Special thanks to the contest sponsors, including Victoria Fire and Safety, Citgo Petroleum Corporation and Rosewood Funeral Chapel. In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between residents of our community escaping safely from a fire or having their lives end in tragedy. That’s why this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme: "Fire Won't Wait. Plan Your Escape" is so important. "Be Ready for the Unexpected, Especially while sleeping" reinforces why everyone needs to be aware of how to get out of a home safely.
