Safety Scavenger Hunt

Summer of Safety Scavenger Hunt Header

School is Out and Summer of Safety is Here! 

Our Loudoun County Combined Fire and Rescue System firefighters and EMT's have really missed our in-person visits to schools and events to talk about fire and life safety! To make sure you and your family know how to stay safe this summer, we worked with our friends at parks across Loudoun County to help us deliver important safety messages. Visit the parks below with our Summer of Safety Scavenger Hunt and learn all about safety AND a chance to win a free Domino's Pizza party delivered by your Loudoun firefighters! 

Scavenger Hunt Instructions

  1. During the designated times, visit the specific parks to look for the Summer Safety Stop sign. 
  2. Once you find the stop, scan the QR code with a mobile phone for important safety tips. 
  3. Then complete the brief "Safety Stop Complete" form to submit answers and upload any photos or videos. 
    • You can complete this step from your mobile device or computer. To be entered into the drawing, someone over age 18 will need to provide a valid email address. Email addresses will only be used to contact grand prize winners. Submitted photos and other materials will not be used without participant's consent.

For every stop that you complete, your name will be entered into a grand prize drawing for Domino's Pizza delivered by a fire truck! Remember, the more safety stops that you complete, the more chances you have to win. Follow us on social media to get hints on where each Safety Stop sign is located throughout the summer. You can also post photos of your safety adventure on our Twitter or  Facebook page using #SummerofSafety and #SuperSafeLoudoun.   

Important Reminders

  • Please practice local safety guidelines for COVID-19. 
  • Don’t forget, you will need a camera that can take photos and video, smart phones work great!
