APPLICATION FOR 2016

Are you a fire and life safety educator who takes a lead role in making your community safer? Do you work for a local fire department or fire marshal’s office, use NFPA materials in a creative and consistent way, demonstrate excellence and innovation? If so, you’ll want to consider putting your name in nomination for the 2016 Fire and Life Safety Educator of the Year Award. The winning educator will receive a $1,000 honorarium, travel to Las Vegas in June for an award presentation at the general session of the NFPA Conference and $1,000 donated to the educator’s local fire department to support public education activities.

Or, if you know of an educator who you feel should be considered for the award, you can put that person’s name in nomination. The deadline to submit the nomination form is February 12, 2016.

 

NFPA has produced a library of American Sign Language videos; a heating safety video is among them. Available on the heating safety page of the NFPA website, the video includes a voice over and open captioning, and provides tips for staying safe and warm while heating the home. The video is one of many tools that can be used to raise public awareness. It can be a companion piece to the heating safety toolkit, a resource for conducting a community heating safety awareness campaign.

NFPA has also produced American Sign Language videos on the topics of electrical, cooking, and smoking safety.
