The Bossier City Fire Department has received a $2500 fire prevention grant from FM Global, one of the world’s largest property insurers.
FM Global representative Brent Merchant presented the award to Bossier City Fire Chief Sammy Halphen today at the BCFD’s Central Fire Station, 620 Benton Road. The award will be used to assist the Bossier City Fire Prevention Bureau with fire prevention activities in the community to help educate the public and reduce the number of fires.
“We certainly appreciate this generous gesture from FM Global,” said Chief Halphen. “These funds will help our fire prevention officers get the word out to the public about fire safety with the goal being a reduction in fires citywide.”
FM Global is based in Johnston, Rhode Island and has contributed millions of dollars in fire prevention grants to fire service organizations around the world including many in Louisiana.
