Waco, Texas (Sept. 27, 2011) – The Waco Fire Department has the opportunity to win $10,000 by getting 2,000 people to take a simple 2-minute fire safety quiz online by October 31st.
The quiz is part of Liberty Mutual’s Fire Safety Pledge Program on “BeFireSmart.com,” an interactive site and fire safety resource for parents, teachers, firefighters and kids.
Now through October 31st, Waco area citizens can simply go to www.BeFireSmart.com and complete the Fire Safety Pledge Quiz online, then credit the completed quiz to the Waco Fire Department. Citizens will be asked to verify an e-mail address in order for the credit to count, but fire officials want to assure them the address will not be used for ANY other purpose.
The fire departments with the most credits, or points, in their respective divisions will earn a $10,000 grant, to be used for expanding firefighting resources, training and public education.
The quiz asks true/false questions about where fires start and how to prevent and extinguish them. By completing the simple quiz, participants can earn a credit for the Waco Fire Department and watch and watch its rise on the leaderboard.
