#TBT from the NFPA archives: More vintage messaging from the 1940s

Blog Post created by jrodowicz Employee on Jul 19, 2018

This week we look back at another vintage NFPA poster from 70 years ago. The drawings may seem quaint and nostalgic, but this message from 1948 remains significant today. 

According to NFPA, between 2011 and 2015, local fire departments responded to an average of 4,300 fires per year in one- or two-family homes that were caused by outside or open burning of waste or debris.

For more information regarding this and other moments in fire history, please reach out to the NFPA Research Library & Archives. We house all of NFPA's publications, both current and historic, that you're able to search.  
Library staff is also available to answer reference questions from members and the general public.
