Listen up!  To celebrate the 100-year anniversary of Fire Prevention Week, the Culver City Fire Department is having a contest to honor this year’s theme – Fire won’t wait, plan your escape. This contest is for children from preschool through 5th grade. The task is simple—create the best home escape plan you possibly can. Make it as detailed, colorful, or unique as you want!  At the very least, the plan needs to show each room of your home, the ways you can escape each room, where the smoke detectors are, and the family meeting point. View an example plan.  The best home escape plans will win a station tour at a Culver City Fire Station!  

Send us your home fire escape plans in one of three ways:

Turn in your plan online

Upload your plan 

Drop off your plan in-person

Hand-deliver your plan to the Community Risk Reduction offices located on the 2nd floor of City Hall 9770 Culver Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232.
City Hall is open from 7:30 AM-5:30 PM, Monday – Friday with closed Fridays every other week. Plan to take Culver CityBus or parking access is available from Duquesne Ave.
