The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has named the Carrsville Volunteer Fire Department of Virginia the recipient of the 2016 Rolf H. Jensen Memorial Public Education Grant. The grant will support the department’s program, “Carrsville Loves Older Adults: Remembering When There’s Love There’s A Smoke Alarm.”

A collaborative effort between the fire service and community groups, the program is an effort to educate older adults in the Carrsville area of Isle of Wight about fire and fall prevention and installing smoke alarms in their homes. The program seeks to instill in residents the importance of having working smoke alarms and creating a home escape plan. NFPA’s Remembering When program will play a key role in the campaign.

Carrsville will receive $5000 in grant money, which will be used to purchase ionization smoke alarms, with nonreplaceable batteries, designed to work for up to 10 año. Along with the fire department, community groups such as the Carrsville Ruritan Club, the Isle of Wight Parks and Recreation Department, and the local Boy Scout troop will help to implement the campaign.

Rolf H. Jensen, P. E., was a leading authority on fire protection engineering and participated in and supported the NFPA consensus standards process throughout his distinguished career. The grant is awarded annually to any fire department located in the United States or Canada – paid or volunteer – to support a community-wide fire and life safety education program or campaign. Recipients are chosen based on demonstration of a plan to implement the program or campaign aimed at the general public or a targeted group, clearly stated goals and objectives, staff assigned for the project, and a final report.
