2013 Life Safety Achievement Award
Kootenai County Fire & Rescue was recently presented with a Life Safety Achievement Award for its fire prevention accomplishments in 2013 by the National Association of State Fire Marshals Fire Research and Education Foundation in partnership with Grinnell Mutual Reinsurance Company.
"The heroic efforts of our local fire service aren't limited to rushing into burning buildings to save families. They also present educational information to local schools and other community groups to make sure people know how to respond to fires and how to prevent them in the first place," said Alan Clark, assistant vice president of Special Investigations for Grinnell Mutual. "The Life Safety Achievement Award recognizes fire departments for their fire prevention programs that have been proven to save lives year after year."
