A spokesperson for North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “A big part of our work is being out and about delivering safe and well activities which is where we can visit people in their homes completely free of charge, and talk with them about how they can keep safe and well in their homes. “As part of this competition we are encouraging children but also parents, carers, grandparents, aunts and uncles and guardians, to check out our short safe and well film which virtually covers some of the key safety points we’ll discuss as part of a visit.” To enter watch the video below and then complete the entry form saying what you learnt from the video and giving your suggested name for the fire engine.

After shortlisting, the winning names for each fire engine will be chosen on the week commencing June 28 by Philip Allott, North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner. The two winners will have their suggested name displayed on the side of each of the new fire engines and each engine will be taken to the winning child’s school for an official naming ceremony. The competition closes June 25. For more information click here.
