According to a recent NFPA survey, most firefighters don’t know how to get involved in our codes and standards making process or don’t think their voices will be heard.  As a result the NFPA has launched a new campaign called NFPA Standards in Action: Your Voice Matters.  This is an excellent opportunity for firefighters to have input into the standards that directly impact you.  Click on the following link for more information and to see how you can become involved,  http://www.nfpa.org/standardsinaction. Firefighters are directly impacted by our codes and standards on the job each and every day. If you think changes need to be made to them, we need to hear from you!

Posted by michaelwixted Employee Jun 16, 2015

Are you a fire fighter and know of NFPA, but can’t figure out how to connect it to your day-to-day job? Check out the Your Voice Matters website (http://www.nfpa.org/research/for-the-fire-service/nfpa-standards-in-action_your-voice-matters) and get engaged with NFPA. It gives a quick and easy overview of what NFPA does, shows how it relates to the great work you do, and gives you some tools for proposing changes to NFPA Standards.

If you are attending the NFPA Conference and Expo in Chicago make sure you get the offical app.  Its easy!  Check out the following link and blog post!
