BRADENTON -- During this year's National Fire Prevention Week (October 9-15, 2011), the Bradenton Fire Department will be educating children on fire safety and debuting a contest that will give students the opportunity to share what they have learned. All 3rd through 5th grade students in schools within the City of Bradenton are eligible to enter their own designed and written fire safety themed comic book for a chance to win Bradenton Marauders gift bags, award certificates, and on-field pre-game recognition!
Flyers with more information will be distributed during in-class presentations, and will be available on the Bradenton Fire Department page of www.CityofBradenton.com.
