SOMONAUK — October is traditionally known of as Fire Prevention Month. To promote fire safety principles in the community, the Somonauk Fire Department conducts several programs in the local schools.

Included this year were annual fire drills, classroom visits with fire safety lessons and a fire safety poster contest. The third grade students in Somonauk’s schools produced beautiful posters of original artwork with fire safety themes.

The top three posters of each third grade classroom visits are on display in local Somonauk businesses to both showcase the talents of the local students, and to provide a reminder of important safety lessons to all who view the posters. Additionally, the first-place artist from each classroom was delivered to school in a Somonauk Fire Department fire engine.
