Data, research, and tools

To keep you in the know, NFPA studies fire data in detail to provide insights about the overall fire problem, firefighter fatalities and injuries, major fire causes, fire protection systems, and many other topics. Through the Fire Protection Research Foundation we work with organizations around the world to investigate emerging fire safety hazards and solutions.


If it’s research on fire, electrical, or related hazards that you need, NFPA’s got you covered. Our Research Foundation facilitates major research programs - both domestic and international - that address industry challenges. The staff in our Morgan Library, one of the largest fire science libraries in the worlds, stands ready to help you and maintains the NFPA archives. We also maintain hundreds of historic fire investigation reports and produce a free research newsletter.

NFPA produces a variety of print and online resources to keep you current. Our member publication, NFPA Journal®, covers major fire protection and suppression topics, statistical reports, and articles on advances in fire protection, public education, and codes and standards development.
