Properly equipped and trained fire service agencies can help limit damage from a fire or other emergency. FM Global is committed to assisting fire service agencies worldwide.

  • Ignitable liquids and gases
  • Inspecting, testing and maintaining fire protection systems

Fire Service Training Grant

The new FM Global Fire Service Training Grant provides selected fire departments with realistic, hands-on training for fighting fire in commercial and industrial facilities. This training is conducted by training specialists at FM Global’s Emergency Response Consultants training campus in Rome, Georgia, USA. While there, participants will have the opportunity to learn from loss prevention experts, using state-of-the-art equipment, so that they can apply the knowledge afterwards within their jurisdictions.

All costs for the training (including travel, meals, etc.) will be fully covered by FM Global.
