National Fire Protection Associations (NFPA)

Disasters can occur anywhere, and they often occur when we least expect them. NFPA codes and standards are there to provide us with ways to prevent their occurrence, manage their impact, and protect us. NFPA develops, publishes, and disseminates more than 300 consensus codes and standards intended to minimize the possibility and effects of fire and other risks. Virtually every building, process, service, design, and installation in society today is affected by NFPA documents. NFPA's codes and standards, administered by more than 250 Technical Committees comprising approximately 8,000 volunteers, are adopted and used throughout the world. Learn More >
