Firefighters and RCMP hold 'Chief for a Day' Contest

Lloydminster, AB/SK – The City of Lloydminster Public Safety team invites elementary students in Grades 4-6 to participate in the ‘Chief for a Day’ contest.

“Last year’s ‘Chief for a Day’ contest was a huge success. Students learned about the importance of emergency preparedness, and eight lucky students received the opportunity to act as both Fire and Police Chief for a Day,” said Anne Danielson, Emergency Management Coordinator. “This contest is a fun way to engage students as well as generate excitement for the 2017 Emergency Preparedness Week occurring this May 7-13, 2017.”

Students can enter the contest by submitting a short written report, video, or other creative submission on the topic below.

It’s important to have an emergency preparedness kit for unexpected events like tornadoes, power outages and home evacuations. Is your family prepared for unexpected emergencies? Have you built an emergency preparedness kit? If so, tell us how you built it, what’s inside and what else your family does to be prepared for unexpected emergencies. If your family has not already built an emergency kit, show us how you will encourage them to build one and give other families tips on how to make building an emergency kit easy and fun for the whole family.

This year’s winners will experience the following when they become ‘Chief for a Day’:
  • Being picked up by Fire or Police Chief (Detachment Commander) at school in Fire/RCMP vehicle between 9:00-10:00 a.m. on May 5, 2017.
  • Swearing in ceremony at City Hall by Mayor Gerald Aalbers. Local media are invited and parents are welcome.
  • A BBQ lunch at the RCMP Detachment with the Lloydminster Fire Chief and RCMP Detachment Commander.
  • Lunch demonstrations from the WPD Ambulance.
  • Fire Chief activities: Tour of Fire Hall, Rescue Race and Fire Hose Target Practice.
  • Police Chief activities: Tour of RCMP Building and Forensic Challenges.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, March 24, 2017, at 5:00 p.m. and can be submitted by email or regular mail to:

Charlene Robinson, Community Services - City of Lloydminster
4420-50 Ave. Lloydminster, AB/SK, T9V 0W2
Email: crobinson@lloydminster.ca

Winning entries require parent authorization forms, as well as student and parent contact information. Winners will be announced the week of April 10, 2017, and the ‘Chief for a Day’ event will occur on May 5, 2017.
A total of eight lucky students will be chosen to participate in ‘Chief for a Day’.
