The Technical Committee on Forest and Rural Fire Protection (FRU-AAA) submitted a request to the NFPA Standards Council at its October 2013 meeting to reorganize into two new technical committees with more well-defined scopes. The proposed committees would separate the current document workload, increase the number of wildland fire protection experts involved, and increase the capacity for the committees to take on new projects. The NFPA Standards Council approved the proposed reorganization of FRU-AAA at its quarterly meeting just this past week in San Juan, PR. NFPA is currently seeking members to develop balanced rosters for the two new committees. The application deadline for the development of the new committee rosters is May 12, 2014. These rosters will be submitted for approval at the August 2014 meeting of the NFPA Standards Council. Please take a look at the details below, and submit an application online to the committee, or committees, of your expertise.
The Technical Committee titles below contain links where applications can be submitted online. The approved reorganization of FRU-AAA will result in the following new committees and corresponding document assignments:
Scope: This committee shall have the primary responsibility for documents on fire protection in wildland, rural, and suburban areas.
Scope: This committee shall have the primary responsibility for documents on wildland fire management.
