For years the NFPA Educational Messages Desk Reference has been the “go-to” document for fire and life safety educators looking for accurate and consistent burn and fire safety messaging to use when providing information to the public. Now the document is reaching a broader audience–French Canadian speakers. The 2019 NFPA Educational Messages French Canadian Edition is available on NFPA’s Canadian Fire Education Materials page as well as the Educational Messaging page. We express thanks to the catalysts behind this effort– Laura King, NFPA’s Public Education Representative for Canada, Paul Dainton, public education network representative in Nunavut, the government translators, and the Nunavut Office of the Fire Marshal. A Spanish edition of the Desk Reference is in the works.
