Fire Brigade headquarters in Castlebar was the venue for the special presentation night for the competition in 2018, where 5 lucky national school children were presented with their prizes. The Fire Service were delighted to host a presentation and reception in Castlebar Fire Station for the children, their families and teachers. The presentations were made to the children by the Cathaoirleach, Mr. Blackie Gavin (a long serving fire fighter with Castlebar Fire Brigade) and the Chief Executive of Mayo County Council, Mr. Peter Hynes. Also, in attendance for the presentations were Mr. John Condon, Director of Services and Mr. Seamus Murphy, Chief Fire Officer.
We want to reinforce the fire safety message which is actively rolled out by our fire fighters annually in the county using the National Primary Schools programme for Fire Safety in the home.
The quiz involves children entering an online quiz competition, restricted to children from national schools in County Mayo alone. Children log onto the website – www.graduate.ie and answer questions in relation to fire safety in the home. Students who complete the quiz correctly are entered into a draw to win prizes.
Our aim is to educate children so that they in turn educate their families, making children the ambassadors of fire safety in the home.
