Do you have a great idea for a community-wide fire and life safety campaign or program but need funding to get the project launched? If so, you’ll want to consider applying for the Rolf H. Jensen Memorial Public Education Grant. Funded by the RJA Group, the $5,000 grant is open to any fire department–career or volunteer–located in the United States or Canada.

In addition to the $5,000, the winning department will receive a commemorative plaque and the department’s name inscribed on the winners’ plaque displayed at NFPA headquarters. Many recipients find that the grant helps to generate positive media coverage for the fire department and raises the profile of the department in the community.

The application is available on the NFPA website. You have until February 6, 2015, to apply.
