Angie Gregg, NCBAM west regional director, was awarded the B.T. Fowler Lifetime Achievement Award by the NC Fire & Life Safety Education Council.
The award recognizes an individual who has made a difference in preventing the devastating effect of fire, burn injuries, and deaths in North Carolina.
Gregg began her career as a firefighter with the
Blowing Rock Fire Department before
serving with NC’s Office of State Fire Marshal (OSFM) as an Injury Prevention Specialist. Prior to retiring from OSFM, she worked closely with NCBAM assisting the ministry with its fall- and fire-prevention programs.
NCBAM Director Dr. Sandy Gregory, was thrilled when Gregg joined NCBAM, “We focus on fire prevention because of its impact on seniors. Angie’s expertise has strengthened our programs.”
Since joining NCBAM, Angie created NCBAM’s Home Safety and Fire Prevention checklists and the workshops: “Home Invasion Prevention” and “Staying Safe and Helping Others
During COVID-19.” The latter provides information regarding the use of personal protective equipment and other practices that increase the safety of volunteers and those being served.
Most recently, Gregg wrote a FEMA Fire Prevention Safety grant that awarded $40,000 to NCBAM for its smoke alarm program.
NC Commissioner Mike Causey and Leigh Kish, chair of the Fire and Life Safety Council presented the award to Angie Gregg in February.
