The Watertown Fire Department is pleased to announce the Town winners of this year’s Connecticut Fire Prevention Poster Recognition Program

4TH Grade Winner

Deanna Gallant

St John The Evangelist School

(with Principal Mrs Marylou Walsh Iannone)

5th Grade Winner

Jalyssa  Kennedy

Polk School

(with teacher Mrs. Barlow)

Each year this contest attracts thousands of students from communities throughout the state to help spread the message of Fire Safety.

 We believe the  students are a valuable link in the chain of communication when it comes to Fire Safety because they will take this lesson home and promote fire prevention measures to the entire family. 

Although every poster cannot win, each and every one of them helps to promote a very important message; Fire Prevention Everyone/ Everyday.

This year’s winners faced some tough competition making the selection to choose just one from each grade very difficult.

This Year the fourth grade winner was Deanna Gallant from St John the Evangelist and The Fifth Grade winner was Jalyssa Kennedy from Polk School.  Both winners were presented with a certificate and a check from the Watertown Fire Marshal’s office and their posters where sent on to be judged at the county level. If selected as a Litchfield County winner their posters will then move to the finale Phase and be judged against all county winners for the title of State winner.  All county winners posters will be displayed throughout the capital this October as well as featured in a fire prevention calendar for next year.


The contest is put on each year through the office of the State Fire Marshal along with the CT Fire Marshals association, Ct Fire Chief’s Association , Ct Board of Education, Ct Department of Energy & Environmental Protection and The CT Fair plan representing the Insurance Industry.
