NFPA President/CEO Jim Pauley, NFPA staff and representatives from the Fire Services Section (FSS) Executive Board are in Glasgow this week at Scottish Fire Symposium 2017. The US-based contingent are providing industry perspective along with their UK counterparts on a myriad of topics including research and development programs; firefighter health and safety; working with trade unions; codes and standards; residential sprinklers; emergency medical response; terrorist events; data; youth engagement; and careers.



NFPA's FSS connects international peers from command level to hands-on firefighters, occupational safety and health experts, training personnel, and code enforcers. Members work to advance the interests of the fire profession; stimulate continuing education; encourage involvement in the code process; foster the development of improved fire suppression equipment, apparatus, and facilities; raise awareness of relevant legislation and regulations; protect cultural diversity; and promote interaction with like-minded organizations.
