One more week remains before the deadline to apply for the Rolf H. Jensen Memorial Public Education Grant.

Named in honor of Rolf H. Jensen, a leading authority on fire protection engineering, the grant is awarded annually to a local fire department to support a fire and life safety education community-wide program or campaign.

Funded by the RJA Group, now Jensen Hughes, the grant is open to any fire department–career or volunteer–in the United States or Canada.

Here’s why you should apply:

  • The grant provides $5,000 to support the implementation and evaluation of the department’s fire and life safety education program or campaign.
  • Recipient receives a commemorative plaque.
  • Opportunities for media coverage will bring attention in your community to the good work that the department is doing.
  • You have nothing to lose.

The downloadable application is available through February 5.
