Earning an Engine Ride

Congratulations to all of the winners of the Downers Grove Fire Department's  Home Escape Fire Safety contest, open to all third grade students in the Learn Not to Burn program.

The winners are picked up at their home by a fire truck and may bring a friend and their teacher to the fire station to have breakfast with the firefighters. The fun continues as they board the fire truck to be taken to school, often with a waiting crowd of classmates outside to welcome them.
