All it takes is a couple of minutes of your time.

You could help the Grand Junction Fire Department win $25,000 for local fire safety education and it won't cost you a single dime. The runner-up prize is $15,000 and the second runner-up prize is $10,000.

It's money that would be well-spent keeping us safe from the danger of a late-night fire.

The GJFD has created two videos for the 'UL Close Before You Doze' contest. All you have to do is go here or here and vote for one or both of these videos. The top eight will advance to the next round. There a panel of UL representatives will rank the finalist and will award the prize money to the fire departments associated with each respective video.

You can see one of the videos above, but please click on the links to cast your vote. A top-eight finish for one of the Grand Junction videos would mean at least $5,000 for fire safety education.

This is an easy way for the community to give back and support this band of first responders who work hard to protect the lives and property in the Grand Valley. Just a couple of mouse clicks and you're done. I voted and I'm asking you to do the same.
