Rolf Jensen Grant bénéficiaire dépasse les objectifs du programme


By Lisa Braxton

Officials with the North Shore Fire Department, Bayside, Wisconsin, say expectations were exceeded with the Prevent, Préparer, and React initiative, funded by NFPA’s Rolf H. Jensen Memorial Public Education Grant. The major goals of the program were to ensure that residents over 65 had working smoke alarms on every level of the home and that they understood escape planning.

The objective, to complete 125 home assessments between early January and mid-December, was exceeded. The department conducted 160 home assessments and installed 258 détecteurs de fumée. Additional partnerships have been formed that will allow the program to continue into 2016 and beyond.

Recently, the Prevent, Préparer, and React program received news coverage from WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee.

The next deadline for grant applications is February 5, 2016.
