NFPA established its relationship with the fire service in 1896 through its work on fire sprinkler systems and electrical safety. Now it’s taking that relationship to a new level.

This fall, NFPA will host the first NFPA Responder Forum, an annual event designed to expose the fire service to emerging technologies, research, and standards development. As NFPA's Ken Willette explains in his NFPA Journal® column, the event will be held October 26–28 in Indianapolis and will include two days of panel discussions, presentations, and small-group meetings. Participants will be sponsored by the nine major fire organizations, and attendance will be capped to ensure good discussion and the development of action plans to address the issues presented at the event.
