Mark Rust, FM Global representative, presented the award to Michael Underhill, Rescue Squad CEO, at the Rescue Squad building on November 21, 2012. The award will be used to assist with fire prevention and safety activities in the community to help educate the community and reduced the numbers of fires.
Because fire continues to be the leading cause of property damage worldwide, during the past 35 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 Tennessee-based organizations.
