NFPA Fire Service Specialist Ryan Depew today provided an overview on how the NFPA standards development process is structured to take full advantage of the most current information about wildland fires and mitigation strategies. He discussed how the standards are created (specifically NFPA 1141, Standard for Fire Protection Infrastructure for Land Development in Suburban and Rural Areas, and NFPA 1144, Standard for Reducing Structure Ignition Hazards from Wildland Fire), the information they provide, and how they can be used in the "real world".
