“I get to see amazing proposals from people enthusiastic about fire and life safety who recognize the importance of expanding on the work they do in their communities,” Grant says. “It does my heart good to see these individuals carry on the legacy of Mr. Jensen, a proponent of fire and life safety education.”
Rolf H. Jensen, P.E., was also a leading authority on fire protection engineering and participated in NFPA’s consensus standards process throughout his distinguished career. The deadline for applications this year is February 8. Grant encourages prospective applicants who may have doubts about the strength of their proposals to apply anyway.
“Get the experience of going through the application process,” he says. “If you don’t win this year, there’s always next year. It’s a great opportunity.”
