What we do


Codes and Standards
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.

Research
NFPA´s wealth of fire-related research includes detailed statistics and reports. Our Charles S. Morgan Technical Library is one of the most comprehensive fire literature collections in the world. The Fire Protection Research Foundation is a source of independent fire test data.

Training
Our seminars allow you to stay code-current and earn CEUs while you interact with our nationally recognized experts. A number of national conferences and symposia offer key information and networking opportunities for the fire protection, life safety, and electrical industries.

Safety Information
NFPA is your source of education materials designed to reduce fire deaths, injuries, and property loss.

"I was drawn to NFPA both for the challenge of the position, as well as the mission that NFPA supports. I have had an opportunity to engineer significant infrastructure updates, which has provided an appealing challenge. Tying this into NFPA’s  mission for safety was too good to pass up."

Kevin Carr, Manager, Building Operations, NFPA
