Fire Prevention Efforts with FM Global Grant

JACKSON, Tenn.—The Jackson Fire Department has received a US$2,700 fire prevention grant from FM

Global, one of the world’s largest commercial property insurers.

FM Global representatives presented the award to Errick Merriweather at the Jackson Fire Department

Fire Safety House located on 74 B Conalco Dr. in Jackson Tn. 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.

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 Tennessee-based


“At FM Global, we strongly believe the majority of property damage is preventable, not inevitable,” said

Michael Spaziani, assistant vice president – manager of the fire prevention grant program. “Far too

often, inadequate budgets prevent those organizations working to prevent fire from being as proactive

as they would like to be. With additional financial support, grant recipients are actively helping to

improve property risk in the communities they serve.”

Through its Fire Prevention Grant Program, FM Global awards grants to fire departments—as well as

national, state, regional, local and community organizations worldwide—that best demonstrate a need

for funding, where dollars can have the most demonstrable impact on preventing fire, or mitigating the

damage it can quickly cause.
