20 Canadian Fire Departments Will Receive $500 For Local Home Fire Sprinkler Education. The deadline to apply is March 6, 2020.

As part of its ongoing nonprofit safety education mission, the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition Canada is inviting Canadian fire departments to apply for new stipend awards that will increase local awareness of home fire sprinklers. With generous underwriting from the Co-operators, 20 qualifying departments will receive $500 to enhance their local outreach.

The stipends will help fire departments of any size or type conduct educational events featuring a side-by-side fire and sprinkler burn demonstration. The stipend can be used to purchase materials to build a new display, rehab an existing display, produce educational materials distributed at the demonstration or to build an NFPA 13D display to be used at the event.

To qualify, applicants must be current members of the free Built for Life Fire Department Program (BFLFD), developed by HFSC to help the fire service improve local home fire sprinkler education. They will also be required to describe their plan to use and evaluate their awards. Join the Built for Life Fire Department program and apply for the stipend. The deadline to apply is March 6, 2020.
