Over 200 public education and community risk reduction specialists from 14 states gathered in Edison, New Jersey this week to hear from a variety of subject matter experts from across nine states at the Mid-Atlantic Safety Summit. Topics included; the ABC's of Public Education Messaging, an update on NPFA 3000, the Remembering When Program, an overview of Regional data, and model programs from the Mid-Atlantic Region. Charles Lavin, from the New Jersey Division of Fire Safety, encouraged attendees to take advantage of the networking opportunity at the event as well, noting that the concept for this Summit came out of a similar setting this past June at NFPA's Conference and Expo.
