2019 Fire Prevention Poster Contest
The week of October 6-12, 2019 was fire prevention week and the theme was: "Not every hero wears a cape, PLAN and PRACTICE your ESCAPE!"
The Oliver Paipoonge Fire & Emergency Services put on a poster contest at our four community schools: Crestview, Kakabeka Falls, Valley Central and Thunder Bay Christian School. The poster contest was a great way to get the children involved with planning their fire escape route and putting their plan to the test! The Fire Department donated a prize for best participation and individual awards were given. A trophy was also presented for the best overall poster.
The school with the best participation was Mrs. Voorman's Grade 7/8 class at the Thunder Bay Christian School. Due to the overwelming participation of the class, they won a pizza luncheon. The Thunder Bay Christian School also won a prize for the most participation by students, out of all the school, and won a laptop computer for their amazing effort. This was presented by Prevention Officer Mike Lamers and Captian Shane Zimmer of the Oliver Paipoonge Fire & Emergency Services.
Awards were given to the following individuals:

Bradley Kaemingh was presented the fire prevention trophy for the best overall poster.
