The National Building Museum in Washington, D.C. shared some exciting news with us this week. Their Designing for Disaster exhibition has been extended until Sunday, September 13, 2015. 

If you're planning a summer family vacation in the D.C. area, you won't want to miss this interactive and informative exhibit that focuses on the four forces of nature: earth, air, fire and water, and their impact on communities. The exhibit is a call-to-action for citizen preparedness - from design professionals and local decision-makers to homeowners and school-aged children - and an investigation into how and where to build communities that are safer and more disaster-resilient. By visiting the exhibition, you'll learn how to make a real difference where you live. You'll find ways to play an active role in protecting your community, as well as how to protect yourself, your home and property.

NFPA is a proud co-sponsor of the event and has provided numerous materials, resources and information about wildfire preparedness and safety and our Firewise Communities Program.
