Have a great story, case study or experience to share at the 2015 Backyards & Beyond conference? With NFPA accepting proposals in five key areas including community safety, home construction and landscape design, research, technology and wildfire planning, there's an section for any and all who want to present!

Beach 2Now's the time to save the date! If last year’s conference success in Salt Lake City is any indication, our 2015 event will be sure to please! Hundreds of attendees participated in a diverse number of sessions along with a handful of the top names in the wildfire and science industries who presented on topics such as climate change, wildfire policy, the social sciences, and research behind how homes ignite.

Take a moment to read some of the presentations from 2013 and get a feel for the program. You can find them on our NFPA/conference webpage. Our Fire Break blog always captures great moments and highlights during conference week with videos, interviews and updates on sessions. Check out that site today! Once you've take some time to review all of the great material … I know you’ll want to get involved!


But the deadline to submit your propsal for 2015 is fast approaching. Submit your application by August 29, 2014. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us here at NFPA. We're happy to help answer any questions you have. In the meantime, take a look at our 2015 conference webpage. There you'll find the latest information about Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, event location, registrationaccomodations and travel info and more. 

And don't our newest "Save the Date" postcard and pass it along to your friends and colleagues. 

We hope to see you all there!
