KOKOMO, INDIANA (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
Brenneco Fire Protection presented Kokomo Civic Center with the distinguished Sprinky Award Thursday August 16, 2012. Kokomo Civic Center was commended for its diligence and commitment to fire safety.
“There is no such thing as being too careful when it comes to preventing a fire emergency,” says Eric Flora, owner of Brenneco Fire Protection. “Kokomo Civic Center understands this and does everything they can to ensure they have the best safeguards in fire protection in place and up to date."
Brenneco Fire Protection has been performing inspections at Civic Center Towers of the Kokomo Housing Authority since 2004. Inspections include quarterly fire sprinkler inspections for their entire sprinkler system and annual inspection of their fire pump and one wet standpipe.
“The safety of the citizens of Kokomo is always a primary concern,” Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight stated. “I am very pleased the Kokomo Housing Authority has been recognized for their proactive efforts to protect Civic Center Towers residents.”
“Our highest priority is resident safety and to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for those who call our facilities home. We are very pleased to receive this award acknowledging our efforts,” said Debra Cook, CEO of Kokomo Housing Authority.
Past recipients of the Sprinky Award include the City of Lafayette, IU Health Arnett and Cook Biotech.
