Halloween Post
As I have mentioned in past posts, NFPA has been working with the folks at Martha Stewart Living to provide important fire safety tips for all of the projects and activities we do at home and with our families.

And now, we're excited to share our newest post with you! If you're like me, you probably can't even believe we're talking about Halloween (wasn't it just summer??) but it's just around the corner. So, you'll want to check out our latest "creepy crawl-y" Halloween fire safety tips on Martha's site. There are some great ideas for costumes, decorations and candles that are easy to implement in your own home and can really help keep your family, trick-or-treaters and others who visit your house over the next few weeks and on October 31, fire safe.

Find other great resources for Halloween fire safety on our updated Halloween webpage. You'll discover activities for kids and families, a video, tips sheet and much more.

Remember to stay fire safe this Halloween holiday, everyone, and have a fun and festive All Hallows Eve!

The Report of the Motions Committee addresses one Fall 2015 NFPA Standard with Certified Amending Motions that may be presented at the NFPA Technical Meeting (Tech Session) in Las Vegas, NV on June 15-16, 2016:

  • NFPA 75, Standard for the Fire Protection of Information Technology Equipment

This Report also identifies a list of 22 additional standards that were determined by the Motions Committee to be Consent Standards and, therefore, will be forwarded to the NFPA Standards Council for balloting.  The final date to file an appeal on these Fall 2015 Consent Standards is October 31, 2015
