12 Days of Firemen - Day #11

Welcome to Day #11 of the 12 Days of Firemen. The winners from yesterday are:

Correct answer: Jacki Salay Newbon
Creative answer: bn100

Winners, please make sure to contact me at with your mailing address.

Now on to today's question!

I decided to give us all a break and pick an easier question today. It's a question every kid who looks up to firefighters probably asks at some point.

Why are fire engines red?

These days, they're aren't all red, of course. Many are bright yellow or lime green. But red is still the most common color. There's a historical reason for it. What is it?

As always, research is allowed. Prizes will be awarded for one randomly selected correct answer and one creative.

The winner will receive your choice of any signed book from my backlist, along with a Bachelor Fireman mug and some Kona coffee! (Since I'm in Hawaii, I'm sharing the love.)

The "creative" winner will receive a Bachelor Firemen gift pack.

You have until 10am EST tomorrow to leave your answer here or on my Facebook page. This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Facebook. Good luck!
