Saturday, October 1, 2011 – On October 1st WMTFD held its annual fire prevention poster contest during the West Manchester Township truck touch. The participants were from Lincolnway Elementary School and Trimmer Elementary school of West York School District. The students were given the topic of Protect Your Family From Fire which is this years theme for fire prevention month. The students then had to design a poster to go along with the theme.
Votes were taken during the truck touch and the contestant with the highest votes from each school won a fire truck ride along with 4 of their friends to school. The year Kylie McCubbin and Georgia Rogers were winners of the contest.
The Poster contest was orginally started by Assistant Chief Roy Gentzler at Lincolnway Elementary as a way to raise funds for a scholarship fund that the department started.
