JUNIOR Fire Safety Champions from across Warwickshire have been applauded for keeping the county safe.
More than 100 families across the county completed a fire safety check to become champions.
And as part of a live draw youngsters including George Russell from Rugby, Rex Glover from Southam, Leo Beaumont from Leamington and Hudson Conway from Warwick were among 15 of those to win the Junior Fire Safety Champion competition and scoop a medal.
Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Services chief fire officer Kieran Amos said:
“It was an honour to be able to draw the winners of the Junior Fire Safety Champion competition. The response has been amazing, so thank you to everyone who got involved and took the time to fill in a safety check, you are all now officially champions and can be very proud of yourselves.
“With the arrival of Covid-19, a lot of our direct work with communities had to be put on hold and that included our fire safety work in schools. This however hasn’t stopped our Fire Prevention Team coming up with innovative ways to keep both our children and our communities safer.
“As chief fire officer, it was great to be able to be part of the amazing work the team have done and to thank all the children personally for taking part.”
