Marshalltown Fire Department to Bolster
Fire Investigation Efforts with FM Global Grant
Thanks to the efforts of Fire Marshal Josh Warnell, the Marshalltown Fire Department has been awarded a $1,750 fire prevention grant from FM Global, one of the world’s largest commercial property insurers. The award will be used to assist with fire investigations to help fire investigators more efficiently investigate and determine the cause of a fire. Specifically, the grant will be used to purchase a digital camera, lighting, and flash attachment.
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 Iowa-based organizations. With additional financial support, grant recipients are actively helping to improve property risk in the communities they serve.
