Fire hall photo con­test up and running

The Casket - - Wheels - CON­TRIB­UTED com­mu­ni­

AA Munro In­sur­ance has launched its 8th An­nual Fire Hall Photo Con­test. All fire de­part­ments in the prov­inces of Nova Sco­tia, P.E.I. and New Brunswick are in­vited to en­ter.

A $5,000 first prize and a $1,000 sec­ond prize will be awarded for Nova Sco­tia.

There is a new $3,000 prize this year for P.E.I. and New Brunswick.

The idea is sim­ple; AA Munro will award cash prizes to the fire de­part­ments which can ac­cu­mu­late the most ‘Likes’ on a team photo posted to AA Munro’s Face­book page.

There is also a spe­cial Judges’ Choice prize on In­sta­gram; $500 will be awarded to one At­lantic Cana­dian who posts a fire re­lated photo on In­sta­gram with the hash­tags #Firstin­lastout and #aa­munro.

“Fire­fight­ers are an im­por­tant part of the in­sur­ance fam­ily and our com­mu­ni­ties. Th­ese de­part­ments are staffed by vol­un­teers and have a hard time rais­ing funds and find­ing peo­ple who want to join. With­out their tire­less ef­forts, in­sur­ance would be far more ex­pen­sive and in some cases not avail­able at all,” Wayne Ezekiel, pres­i­dent of AA Munro In­sur­ance, said.

In ad­di­tion to en­cour­ag­ing friends, fam­ily and co-work­ers to vote, con­test or­ga­niz­ers ask that any­one who has a photo fea­tured that has a Face­book ac­count, is tagged to in­crease the aware­ness of the con­test across Face­book.

Pho­tos need to be emailed di­rectly to Fire­hall@aa­ They will be posted on Face­book within one busi­ness day of be­ing re­ceived.

The win­ner will be the fire hall photo with the most likes on its photo by Nov. 9 at 5 p.m.
