Hello NFPA Bloggers and Followers! HR Logo

The NFPA HR team has decided to enter the wonderful world of blogging and are super excited to do so! I will be heading up the blogging and am looking forward to letting each and every one of our followers know about what is happening at NFPA on the "people side." I will also highlight one open role during each of my blog posts - if you know anyone who might be interested, share my blog and have them apply! We are always looking for talented individuals to join the team!

Have a topic that you'd like to hear about? Let me know in the comments section of each blog.

Recently, NFPA created an Instagram account - yay! This account will be used to tell our story in pictures and the content will range from behind the scenes images from meetings, events and what we are calling "a day in the life," which will highlight NFPA employees. This allows us to connect with our constituents and members while highlighting what really makes NFPA great - our employees.

Now...on to our first highlighted open role! Drum role, please......

Fire Alarm Code Specialist! NFPA has a great opportunity for an experienced fire alarm code specialist who will independently manage complex technical projects related to area of expertise including technical committee, product development, and other association activities.

This role is ideal for someone who has a bachelor's degree in fire protection engineering, electrical, mechanical, civil or chemical engineering along with 7 - 10 years of experience in the fire alarm industry.

From an outside, completely non-technical perspective, this role would provide the opportunity to be a part of a code that is such an integral part of fire safety everywhere. I remember being in Elementary School and having Sparky come visit, explaining to each of my classmates and I the importance of  listening for fire alarms and having a plan to get out if and when you hear the loud BEEP. My point? Fire Alarms are something that keep all of us safe, and being a part of such a huge piece of the Fire Protection puzzle would be incredibly rewarding.
