Local Students Ride in Londonderry Firetruck

The Department of Safety, Office of the State Fire Marshal and the New Hampshire Fire Prevention Society organized a statewide 3rd grade fire and life safety poster contest. The winning posters are to be the graphics for their first Fire and Life Safety School Year Calendar, 2013-2014.

548 posters were submitted from 26 schools and towns throughout the state. On April 30th they celebrated the poster contest winners with a ceremony, presenting each with a certificate, specially designed plaque, children’s book donated by the National Fire Protection Association, and an ice cream sundae party. Sparky greeted the students and families as they arrived.

Two of the poster contest winners were from the Londonderry School system. The cover and October pictures were both from Matthew Thornton Elementary School. In recognition of these achievements the Londonderry Fire Department gave these two poster contest winners a ride home in a fire truck on Friday June 14, 2013 at 2:45 at the Matthew Thornton School.
