PUPILS at Pegswood First School brought some colour to the fire safety message.

They were asked by Northumberland Fire and Rescue Service personnel at the recently opened Pegswood Community Fire Station to design a poster showing the importance of having the right equipment and knowing what to do when you see flames and smoke.

And the winner, six-year-old Corie Pearson, will have her design fixed on the side of some of their fire engines.

The competition was organised by the Blue Watch team at the station.

One of its members, Craig Mole, said: “There were a lot of good entries so it was hard to choose a winner.

“We went for Corie’s work because she knew her fire safety and she used bright and eye-catching colours on her poster.

“The key part of our campaign was to put the message across that people must make sure they always have a smoke detector which is working correctly.”
