Emily Rabski enjoys being "Fire Chief For The Day" after winning the 2006 Fire Chief For The Day Contest. Joining Emily on her special day are Sparky the Fire Dog and Acting Fire Chief, Marc Leduc

May 30, 2006 - Congratulations to Emily Rabski, a Grade 4 student at Pius XII Catholic School for her first place finish in the Fire Chief For The Day Contest. As part of the winning package, Emily was picked up at her house by fire trucks, Aerial 1 and Pump 2 and transported to the
Van Horne Fire Station where she received a tour and proclaimed Chief For The Day!

Emily was later escorted back to the school by the Acting Fire Chief, Marc Leduc for the official Chief For The Day presentation in her classroom. The City of Greater Sudbury Fire Services also participated in a special ceremony honouring her as the first place winner of the 2006 Fire Chief For The Day Contest.

The Fire Chief For The Day Contest was open to all grade four students from the four school boards in the City of Greater Sudbury. Students were invited to participate in creating an escape plan of their home with the help of family members. In order to qualify to win, a contestant had to:

1. Indicate two ways out of each room

2. Identify the location of their smoke detectors

3. Indicate the meeting point outside of the home

4. Identify the emergency phone number

5. Complete and practice the Fire Safety Plan of him/her home

A total of 1,869 students from all four school boards were invited to participate in the Fire Chief For The Day Contest. This activity focused on ensuring that every family developed and practiced a home escape plan would help to save their lives in the event of a fire.
