A federal agency is giving the Vancouver Fire Marshal’s Office a $201,000 grant for fire prevention and safety.

The grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency will support Vancouver’s Project Home Safe campaign, which offers public educational programming to reduce the frequency and severity of house fires.

“Project Home Safe unites zero fire ignition strategies that focus on stopping a fire before it happens with reactionary fire safety education like fire escape planning, free home safety surveys and smoke alarm installation,” Vancouver Fire Marshal Heidi Scarpelli said in a press release.
