Applications are being accepted for the 2016 Rolf H. Jensen Memorial Public Education Grant. Le $5,000 grant is presented annually to a local fire department to support a community-wide fire and life safety education program or campaign. The grant is open to any fire department–career or volunteer–located in the United States or Canada.

The North Shore Fire Department of Wisconsin is the winner of the 2015 grant, which supports the continuation of the department’s “Prevent, Préparer, and React” home assessment and smoke alarm installation campaign.

The deadline for applications is February 5, 2016. The grant committee encourages applications from new and previous candidates.
