Limestone Fire Protection District has been presented with a Life Safety Achievement for the year 2004 by the Residential Fire Safety Institute (RFSI). The award was announced by Roy L. Marshall Director of the RFSI.
For 12 years, the Life Safety Achievement Award has recognized the local fire preventions activities that contributed to reducing the number of lives lost in residential fires. Limestone Fire Protection District qualified for this award in the year 2004 because it recorded zero fire deaths in structures during that year. Although residential fires in the U.S. account for only 20 percent of all fires, they resulted in 80 percent of all fire deaths. The RFSI is committed to reducing that number. A total of 792 fire department across the country have received the 2004 Life Safety Achievement Award.
