On Sunday, June 16, 2019, the 40th Annual MSFA Miss Fire Prevention Ambassador Contest took place in Ocean City, MD. Richard Brooks, III, served as the Master of Ceremonies.

Seven contestants competed for the title: Trisha Simmons representing Washington County, Emily Moyers representing Montgomery County, Madelyn Rose Patrick representing Cecil County, Kerrigan Spenner representing Carroll County, Mikayla Keeley representing Harford-Cecil Firemen's Association, Annie McCullough representing Harford County and Sarah Norman representing MD Fire Chief's Association.

Earlier in the day the contestants met with the judges to discuss their poster projects. On stage, each contestant answered "What is your agenda for promoting fire prevention across Maryland" as well as one other fire prevention question picked at random.

While the judges deliberated we heard outgoing speeches from Brieanne Combs, MSFA Miss Fire Prevention 2018-2019 and Alison Little, MSFA Miss Fire Prevention First Runner-Up 2018-2019. Both did an amazing job this past year representing their fire department, county and the MSFA.

Susan Hilton then asked for all Fire Prevention Ambassadors to come up on stage to be recognized.

The judges then came back and it was announced that the MSFA Miss Fire Prevention First Runner-Up 2019-2020 is Madelyn Rose Patrick from Cecil County and the MSFA Miss Fire Prevention 2019-2020 Annie McCullough from Harford County. Congratulations to all on a job well done.
