Name our fire engine competition

Published 14th Jun 2021

We are encouraging children who live in or around Northallerton and Richmond to help us find a name for our two newest fire engines.

The competition marks the arrival of our two replacement fire engines which carry the latest state of the art equipment and serve the communities of Northallerton and Richmond, and the surrounding areas.

The two new fire engines have replaced the old ones at this stations which were due for replacement due to their age.

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.

How to enter

To enter watch our safe and well video below and then complete the entry form telling us 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 28th June 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 25 June.
