Members of the Carrsville Volunteer Fire Department of Carrsville, Virginia, took a moment
to pose recently with the plaque the department received for being awarded the
Rolf H. Jensen Memorial Public Education Grant for its project, “Carrsville
Loves Older Adults: Remembering When There’s Love There’s A Smoke Alarm.” The
purpose is to educate older adults in the Carrsville area of Isle of Wight County with a
fire and fall prevention program based on NFPA’s Remembering When™, as well as install
smoke alarms in homes of older adults.
In addition to the plaque, the fire department received a grant of $5,000 to support the
project. The grant is presented annually to a local fire department to support a fire and life safety
education community-wide program or campaign.
