Fourth Needs Assessment of the U.S. Fire Service
January 18, 12:30 - 1:30 pm

4th Needs Assessment of the U.S. Fire Service report coverIn Fall 2015, NFPA, in collaboration with other national stakeholders, conducted the 4th Needs Assessment of the U.S. Fire Service with the primary objective of identifying U.S. fire departments' needs, gaps and challenges. The insights collected inform the U.S. Congress and the U.S. Fire Administration where funding is needed and serves as a powerful tool for local fire departments when discussing their capabilities within their jurisdictions. This webinar will discuss the findings of this research effort, which captures new insights about fire department staffing, training, facilities, apparatus, equipment, communications, new technologies and their ability to handle unusually challenging incidents.​​

Speaker: Hylton Haynes, NFPA Senior Research Analyst

Who will benefit: Fire service; state fire marshal's office; fire equipment manufacturers; government officials (local, state, federal); occupational, health and safety professionals; code enforcers.
