Officials from the Chambersburg Fire Department, in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, recently celebrated receiving their plaque for the 2014 Rolf H. Jensen Memorial Public Education Grant. The plaque honors the department for its dedication to fire and life safety education through the program, “The Smoke Alarm is Sounding: Know What to Do.” Along with the individual plaque, the department’s name is inscribed on the grant winners’ plaque displayed at NFPA headquarters. The department also received $5,000 to implement the program, which includes education on fire escape planning and installation of smoke alarms.


 

The 2015 application has been posted. The deadline is February 6, 2015. The grant committee encourages applications from new and previous candidates.
