Students from pre-K through third grade participated in coloring and fire ecsape plan contests and winners were invited to a ceremony at the Hampshire Fire Station on Oct. 24 to be honored.

The Hampshire Fire Department and students from the local elementary and preschools participate in public education programs that help teach them about fire safety. With the help of local businesses, the department is able to provide educational materials to the children that help to emphasize the importance of fire safety to everyone.

They learn how to stop, drop and roll and how to escape a burning home using the safety house. They learn about smoke detectors and escape plan development. The younger children see a firefighter dress-up to help calm their fears in an emergency. Nearly 1,000 children participated in the activities which concluded with the fifth-graders viewing a burn demonstration at the fire station.

The month concludes with the program to recognize the winners of the contests and a video of that month's activities. The winners receive a trophy compliments of the Fire Department, an ice cream certificate from Dairy Queen and a free pizza compliments of Palazzolo's Pizza.
