Costa Rica


NFPA’s President, Jim Pauley, visited the Latin American region for the first time this week, to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Costa Rica Fire Department. A big congratulations goes out from all of us at NFPA for reaching this milestone!

During the celebrations, Jim was able to meet Costa Rica's President, Luis Guillermo Solis as well as representatives from the fire service in other Latin American countries. Costa Rica has adopted all over NFPA's codes & standards, and has always been a big supporter of NFPA's work, so Jim wanted to be sure to attend and thank everyone for their hard word and dedication to safety.
