La Plata Volunteer Fire Department Tied 3rd in National Fire Safety Video Competition


Maryland – The La Plata Volunteer Fire Department tied for third place in a national video competition centered on educating the public about fire safety and closing bedroom doors before going to sleep.

La Plata’s Flash Max Slams the Door on Home Fires video tied with Omaha, Nebraska’s “Omaha Fire Department: Close Before You Doze” video.

The departments each walked away with a $10,000 prize in October.

While the Baltimore County Fire Department didn’t place in the competition, its hard-hitting video centered on keeping safe from fire while sleeping with its #closebeforeyoudoze message.
