NFPA Journal launches new web version, will print quarterly

February 17, 2021 NFPA Journal®, the magazine of the National Fire Protection Association has launched a new web version and moved to a quarterly print publication schedule, part of a larger plan to expand its online presence, reach global audiences, and provide one-stop access to the range of content generated by the award-winning NFPA Journal team and the magazine’s many contributors.

The new NFPA Journal online site will be updated regularly with selected content from the print magazine, as well as breaking news coverage, thought leadership pieces, a daily feed of national fire service news, and the latest installments of the popular NFPA Podcast and Learn Something New video series. The site allows readers to view the current issue of the printed NFPA Journal in digital flipbook format and provides easy access to NFPA Journal en Espanol.

The print edition of NFPA Journal, which until recently was published on a bimonthly basis, will be distributed exclusively to NFPA members in February, May, August, and November. The magazine will continue to provide in-depth coverage of emerging trends, codes and standards development, and education and advocacy initiatives to NFPA members.

“These changes mark an exciting point in the evolution of NFPA Journal and represent an important part of NFPA’s growing international influence,” said Scott Sutherland, executive editor of NFPA Journal. “Our new and expanded web identity, combined with our new print schedule, will help us reach more audiences around the world with a wider variety of stories on emerging fire and life safety issues.”
