Fire Prevention Efforts with FM Global Grant
The New Milford Volunteer Fire Department has received a $2,363 fire prevention grant from FM Global, one of the world’s largest commercial property insurers.
FM Global representatives will officially present the award in the next few weeks. The award will be used to assist with fire prevention activities in the community to help educate the community and reduce the number of fires.
Because fire continues to be the leading cause of property damage worldwide, during the past 40 years FM Global has contributed millions of dollars in fire prevention grants to fire service organizations around the globe. Locally, the company has awarded grants to a number of New Jersey-based organizations.
We thank FM Global for supporting the continuing mission of the New Milford Volunteer Fire Department.
