Gary Keith, NFPA’s Vice President of field operations, will be speaking on behalf of NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative at the Phoenix Society's 2011 World Burn Conference. The World Burn Conference is an annual international conference for burn survivors, their families, care givers, burn care professionals and firefighters. Joining other keynote speakers, Mr. Keith will provide information on building a safer home, and available resources from the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition and Fire Sprinkler Initiative.
As part of the larger mission of The Phoenix Society, the conference will include workshops focused on advocacy tips and relevant skills training. Breakout sessions during the conference will also be offered to attendees from all areas of the burn world. As a special tribute, there will be a remembrance walk to the firefighter memorial that is open to the media.
