Barn and silo on a farm fieldNFPA is hosting a fire and life safety symposium on May 12-13 in the Boston area to bring together representatives from rural fire departments across North America. The symposium will help NFPA assess fire and life safety education needs and gain a clear picture of rural fire department challenges related to prevention. Participants will help us better serve rural and volunteer fire departments in their public education, prevention, and Community Risk Reduction efforts.

Symposium attendees will be members of rural fire departments within North America and should have an interest in fire and life safety education. We hope to bring together a dynamic group of representatives who span fire department roles, geographical regions, and experience in education and prevention.

If you are interested in attending the symposium, please complete this online survey. Your input on this survey will help us invite the right mix of rural firefighters. The survey will be open through March 15, 2017. Invitations will be extended to selected participants by March 20, 2017. NFPA will cover expenses related to travel, lodging, and meals during the symposium.
