Freyja Nielsen and Tobin Gill of Begbie View Elementary School were the winners of this year's Fire Chief for a Day contest.

Freyja Nielsen and Tobin Gill of Begbie View Elementary School were the winners of this year’s Fire Chief for a Day contest.

Their fire safety posters, which illustrated their knowledge and understanding of fire safety, were chosen out of 67 submissions.

They were picked up at school on Monday, Nov. 5, in fire engine #1 and spent the afternoon as the city’s fire chiefs. They received a tour of the fire hall, fire truck rides, took part in fire department activities and received a prize package.

They then enjoyed a pizza lunch with the fire department staff.
