Fire/EMS receives grant for fire prevention

Newton Now – March 19, 2018

Newton Fire/EMS has received a grant from FM Global to purchase a live-fire extinguisher training system for fire prevention education.

The $8,345 grant will fund a training System, which uses a controlled propane fire and a water/air fire extinguisher to train individuals on putting out fires. It uses sensor technology to detect how well a trainee uses the extinguisher.

Newton Fire/EMS will be able to use the system for training sessions at local businesses and industries, health care facilities, senior living facilities, and other sites in the community, as part of its fire prevention program.

FM Global representatives have planned a recognition presentation and a demo of the equipment at 11 a.m. Monday, April 30 at Newton Fire/EMS Station 2, 200 E. Third St.
