The 2024 Safety Poster Contest starts Feb. 5! Choose from one of the three topics below, and make your own safety poster. Last day for submissions is March 1. Winners will be announced no later than March 11 and will be offered a dessert party with their class and local firefighters; a Certificate of Accomplishment from the Forsyth County Fire Chief and their artwork displayed in various Forsyth County government buildings.

Trunk or Treat

Every year, the Fire Department brings fun and fire safety together during a Halloween Trunk or Treat event. This is a great event for the whole community to learn about things like costume safety, pedestrian safety and stranger danger.

Want to promote your business or non-profit and give the public a real treat!? Participating in this event is a great way for you and your business to engage in the local community in a creative, fun way.
