Nov. 13, 2006 – For over 3 years, MasterGuard has funded the NSEFO annual conference with sponsorships for various events at the meeting. A portion of the proceeds from each smoke, heat or carbon monoxide alarm sold by MasterGuard is reserved for the fund. From these dollars, MasterGuard’s Education Fund provides grants for educational seminars and symposiums. This year’s event was hosted by Little Rock Fire Chief, Rhoda Mae Kerr. In attendance for the event were graduates of the National Fire Academy and distinguished members of the fire service. Ronny J. Coleman, past president of the International Association of Fire Chiefs and former California State Fire Marshal was in attendance. The keynote speaker for the awards banquet which was held at the Clinton Presidential Library was James Lee Witt. MasterGuard Vice President, Chris Roberts, addressed the NSEFO members at the golf tournament and thanked them for their ongoing efforts in continued education.
