The Educational Messages Advisory Committee meets periodically to review NFPA’s fire safety education messages and to provide recommendations to NFPA public education staff for updating and revising the messages. See the latest edition of the Educational Messages Desk Reference–the 2015 Edition.
The messages are used throughout NFPA’s educational programs, curricula, and handouts, and provide fire and life safety educators with accurate and consistent language for use when offering safety information to the public.
Each topic area is self-contained, written so that all the information needed on a certain subject is provided within that category. As a result, some messaging may be repeated throughout topic areas.
