FM Global Invites Applications for Fire Prevention Efforts

FM Global, a Rhode Island-based property insurance company, is inviting applications for its Fire Prevention Grant Program.

Through the program, grants will be awarded to organizations and agencies around the world in support of fire-prevention efforts. Grant funds may be used for a range of public fire-prevention, -preparedness, and -control efforts. Examples include pre-incident planning (including computer software programs, laptops); fire-prevention education/training (including community outreach initiatives, workshops, publications); and arson prevention/fire investigation (including juvenile fire-setter programs, continuing education courses, digital and specialized cameras, and accelerant detection equipment). If applying for fire-prevention materials, an educational component must be included and a minimum 50 percent of the request should be for materials. If applying for smoke detectors, the detectors must be, at a minimum, ten-year sealed-battery units with photoelectric technology (with or without ionization technology).

To be eligible, applicants must be a unit of a city, town, county, state, commonwealth, the District of Columbia, possession of the United States, the United States itself, or any political subdivision as described in Section 170(b)(1)(A)(v) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service Code or a 501(c)(3) or (c)(4) tax-exempt organization under the U.S. Internal Revenue Service Code.

See the FM Global website for complete program guidelines, application instructions, an FAQ, and information about previous award recipients.

Deadline: September 30, 2020
