North Charleston Fire Department Gets $5,000 NFPA Award

NFPA announced July 19 that the North Charleston Fire Department of South Carolina has been selected as the winner of the 2007 Rolf H. Jensen Memorial Public Education Award. The $5,000 award will support an ongoing smoke alarm installation and inspection project.

NFPA gives the award each year to support a community fire and life safety educational program or campaign. The North Charleston department will use the award to support its Smoke Alarm Assistance Program, which identifies areas at the highest risk for residential fires and provides smoke alarm inspection and installation there. About 180 fire suppression personnel assess needs and provide alarms by conducting door-to-door visits.

The Jensen Award was named for the founder of one of the largest fire protection consulting firms in the world. Recipients are chosen based on these criteria: demonstration of a plan to implement a community-wide fire and life safety program/campaign aimed at the general public or a targeted group, clearly stated goals and objectives, staff assigned to implement the program/campaign, and a final report, including an overview of the project, number of people reached, media coverage, lives saved, and other criteria.
