Blog Post created by ryan.quinn Employee on Feb 17, 2012


Are you a hard-working, dynamic fire safety educator who loves working with children, older adults, and others in the community? Do you consistently and creatively use one or more of NFPA’s core fire safety programs, such as Learn Not to Burn®, Remembering When™: A Fire and Fall Prevention Program for Older Adults, or Fire Prevention Week materials? If so, you could be the next winner of NFPA’s Educator of the Year Award. The deadline for applications is February 24th, so you still have time to apply.

If you are chosen Educator of the Year, you will receive a $1,000 honorarium for you personally and a $1,000 donation to your local fire department to support its public education activities. We all know how scarce resources are, so don’t pass up this opportunity. Download the application form now, and don’t let your busy schedule or your humility keep you from going for it!http://nfpa.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8351b9f3453ef0168e786edef970c-pihttp://nfpa.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8351b9f3453ef0167628503f0970b-pi
