Poster Contest

This year, Fire Prevention Week is October 3rd through the 9th. As part of that week, the Tennessee State Fire Marshal's Office (SFMO) is holding our annual Fire Prevention Poster Contest to celebrate Fire Prevention Week. Like last year, the 2021 contest will be completely virtual!

This year’s theme for Fire Prevention Week and the Fire Prevention Poster Contest is “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety”. We encounter many sounds in our daily lives, but some are more urgent than others. Through the poster contest, we are asking students across the Volunteer State to help us spread the message about the important sounds of fire safety, what they mean, and how to properly respond to those sounds.

Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!
