Chattanooga Fire Safety Award Week Winners
The Chattanooga Fire Department held its annual Fire Prevention Week
awards ceremony today at the Chattanooga Public Library downtown.
Chattanooga Mayor Ron Littlefield joined Fire Chief Randy Parker and
Fire Marshal James Whitmire in handing out prizes to the winners of the
fire safety poster contest. The winning posters were the ones that best
