CITY RECEIVES GRANT FOR FIRE SAFETY AND PREVENTION

The Lincoln Fire Prevention Bureau (LFPB) has been awarded a $44,347 grant from the U.S. Fire Administration for a comprehensive fire safety and prevention education project.

The LFPB education project will target children between the ages of 10 and 14 who are at risk of setting fires; adults ages 65 and above; college students; workplaces; and individuals with visual impairments. The project will fund fire safety and prevention education materials, National Fire Prevention Association handbooks and related publications, and hardware such as a laptop computer and power point equipment needed to conduct presentations.

“We are always looking for ways to educate the public to prevent fire deaths and property loss,” said Bill Moody, LFPB Chief Fire Inspector. “We are extremely pleased to receive funding for this very worthwhile project and feel it will enhance overall fire safety and prevention in the City of Lincoln. We are very appreciative of this support that will help us continue to educate children and the general public on this very important issue.”

The project also seeks to increase the certification level of LFPB investigators and inspectors.
