A Guide to NFPA Codes & Standards for Fire Personnel
Course Description
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), celebrating its 100th anniversary, has led the way to fire safety since 1896. The mission of the international nonprofit organization is to reduce the burden of fire on the quality of life by advocating scientifically-based consensus codes and standards, research, and education for fire and related safety issues. NFPA is responsible for 300 codes and standards that are designed to minimize the risk and effects of fire by establishing criteria for building, processing, design, service, and installation in the United States, as well as many other countries. Its more than 200 technical code- and standard- development committees are comprised of over 6,000 volunteer seats. Volunteers vote on proposals and revisions in a process that is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). This unique program consists of four modules, i.e. NFPA 1 Uniform Fire Code, NFPA 20 Fire Pumps and NFPA 72 National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code and NFPA 25 Maintenance and Testing of Water based Fire Protection Systems.
