NFPA sites named among “The 45 Best Fire Science Blogs”

Fire Science Degree, a blog created and maintained by Frank and Sally Davison, offers a comprehensive list of accredited fire science colleges and universities. In a recent post, the authors compiled a list of their favorite “fire science blogs”, and three of NFPA’s blogs were among those making the grade.

“Whether you’re interested in fire safety engineering, fire prevention, or firefighting, there is something for you in our list,” the authors write.

The NFPA blogs cited as “the best” were:

  • The Fire Protection Research Foundation blog highlights news, activities, and research from the Foundation, an independent nonprofit whose mission is to plan, manage and communicate research in support of NFPA’s mission. 
  • The Fire Service Today blog is NFPA’s blog for firefighters. Firefighters can learn all about the science behind their protective equipment, read the latest research on sprinklers, or find out the date of the next training session.
  • The Fire Sprinkler Initiative blog provides resources for the fire service and other sprinkler advocates who want to demonstrate the need for home fire sprinklers in their community. The blog also serves as a forum to refute “anti-sprinkler” sentiments.

Thanks to Frank and Sally for adding some of NFPA’s blogs to their “top 45” list. Check out their full list of favorite sites.
