NFPA staff to Canadian fire service, victims: we are thinking of you

NFPA staff at our Quincy, Massachusetts, headquarters spent part of this afternoon cleaning our beautiful wooded campus of flammable trash, a day early for Wildfire Community Preparedness Day to give employees a chance to volunteer their time. All over the U.S. and Canada tomorrow, May 7, communities will come together to undertake projects that make a difference in their safety from wildfire. Our hearts have been heavy with the news of the continuing destruction and displacement in Fort McMurray and surrounding areas in Alberta, Canada. We wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the terrible toll this is taking on our northern neighbors and to send them our thoughts, prayers and good wishes for courage and strength in coping with and recovering from this wildfire disaster.
