“Fire and Life Safety Messaging: What to Say and How to Say It,” an education session on the public education track of this year’s NFPA Conference & Expo, answers those and other questions. A panel of experts will review the results of a study done for NFPA by Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy on the impact of positive and negative fire and life safety messages on children.

The panel will also discuss the NFPA Public Education Division’s Educational Messages Advisory Committee and its annual review and update of educational messages, which includes input from the public.

In addition, session participants will be able to select the messages of greatest interest to them and hear from the panel how and why the messages were developed.
