Bring out your inner artist and be a Brigade Kids Champion!

March 13, 2017

Children are often unaware that a tiny flame can grow into a dangerous fire. So that’s why Fire & Rescue NSW is encouraging families in NSW to talk about fire safety – and what better way to help promote fire safety amongst young kids than with the Brigade Kids Champion Competition, which kicks off today!

The Brigade Kids Champion Competition is open to all kids from Kindergarten to Year 2 across the state to submit a poster which conveys one of three key fire safety messages, and what it means to them:

i. Practice your Escape Plan and have a Safe Meeting Place
ii. Get Down Low, and Go, Go, Go
iii. Call Triple Zero (000) in the case of a fire

Primary Communication is a proud supporter of the Brigade Kids Champion Competition and the account team will play an instrumental role in promoting this important state-wide competition to kids, schools and families in NSW.

All entrants will have the chance to win some great prizes, including an Xbox Minecraft Package for the overall winner and LEGO City Prize Packs for the category winners and runners up (one for each age group) and many more. There are also prize packs from Scholastic for the winning schools.

Qualified submissions will be shortlisted by an extraordinary panel of judges from the crew at Hi-5 to representatives at Lego, NSW Department of Education, Catholic Education Commission NSW, Association of Independent Schools of NSW, NSW Teachers Federation, Westmead Children’s Hospital- Burns Unit, Scholastic and Fire & Rescue NSW. Entries will be judged based on creativity, authenticity, effort and ability to reflect the fire safety messages.

Spread the message to the community and encourage your kids to be a Brigade Kids Champion. Competition runs from 13th March to 23rd April. For more information, visit
