May 4 is a day to recognize and thank firefighters for their commitment, dedication and sacrifice on International Firefighters’ Day.
In an effort to educate the public on what firefighters do each day and how to stay safe from fire risks, the Cranberry Township Volunteer Fire Company is launching a coloring contest for all ages.
Knowing how to reduce risks of fire is crucial, as the best call a firefighter can receive is no call at all. From stop-drop-and roll to cooking safety, there are many steps residents can take to reduce their risk of fire.
A new page on the Township’s website seeks to inform residents of these steps through videos, games and the coloring contest. It can be found at cranberrytownship.org/firesafety.
The coloring contest is broken into four age groups (5 and under, 6-12, 13 – 17, and ages 18 and up) and open to everyone.
The coloring pages can be downloaded from cranberrytownship.org/firesafety.
Participants are asked to like the Cranberry Township Facebook page, and can submit their artwork there, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The contest begins May 4, and submissions must be received by May 19. The pages will be posted on the Township Facebook page, and winners will be chosen by popular vote.
