May 17th marked the very first Fire Safety Summit in Ames, Iowa.  The Iowa State University campus provided a beautiful backdrop as over 60 attendees from across the state rolled in for a diverse line-up of topics on the agenda, including state updates on carbon monoxide and fireworks. On site that day were NFPA representatives from the divisions of Public Education, Codes & Standards, and the Fire Sprinkler Initiative, along with presentations from Consumer Safety Product Commission, the American Red Cross and Sioux City Fire Department.   Special Agent in Charge for the Iowa Department of Public Safety and NFPA Public Education Network Representative for the State of Iowa commented  “Our first annual Iowa Fire Safety Summit was a success.  It was very beneficial to introduce Iowa’s fire service to NFPA and the great resources and information their organization can provide.  We’ve heard great feedback from the attendees and feel we have a strong foundation to build upon for the coming years.”
