In the new issue of NFPA Journal®, NFPA President Jim Shannon talks about the importance of fire safety education. He said in 2014, NFPA will focus on the leading causes of home fires, including cooking, as well as issues such as the misuse of candles and overtaxed electrical outlets. "We also need to continue to push hard for home fire sprinklers," he said. "That’s still a large priority for NFPA, and we plan to work very aggressively in 2014 on our residential sprinkler initiative."
