Hey there NFPA blog followers and fellow bloggers! Summer has come to a close and we are in the midst of a beautiful, crisp, fall here in New England! Ahh, my favorite season!

Right now is a very exciting time to join NFPA, as we are in the midst of transforming ourselves from a codes and standards development organization to an information and knowledge organization. We are the information and knowledge resource on fire, electric and related hazards and we use this knowledge to develop and offer the best tools for our stakeholders. 

As an employee of the NFPA, you are able to be part of something that is much bigger than yourself. You are part of keeping first responders safe, helping to provide architects with guidelines for building design and safety, providing education to children in schools, and so much more. Employees at NFPA bring a collective passion to work every day as they all contribute toward solving the fire problem...all while being offered great benefits that one would expect from an industry leader.
