WESTBROOK — The Westbrook Fire Department was awarded a $3,000 grant to conduct fire safety planning for community buildings.

The grant is provided by FM Global, a commercial property insurer.

“At FM Global, we strongly believe the majority of property damage is preventable, not inevitable,” said Michael Spaziani, manager of the fire prevention grant program, in a written release. “Far too often, inadequate budgets prevent those organizations working to prevent fire from being as proactive as they would like to be.”

The Westbrook Fire Department will use the grant to collect and track data about local community buildings, Public Safety Chief Michael Pardue said in the release.
