NFPA in developing nations: a new challenge

Discussion created by rmcdonald Employee on Apr 28, 2017

Here is a great article from Vice President of Field Operations, Don Bliss, discussing current NFPA efforts in developing countries.  NFPA monitors major fire incidents across the globe, and Don writes about the common thread linking these incidents.  He also gives a great run-down of the current NFPA operations in developing countries, including partnerships which might surprise some of you. This article is a must-read for the whole NFPA community, as we all work towards our vision of, "eliminating death, injury, property and economic loss due to fire, electrical and related hazards.”  Follow this link to read more from Don:
