The Fire Protection Research Foundation: 40 Years of Advancing Safety

The Fire Protection Research Foundation (FPRF or Foundation) plans, manages, and communicates research on a broad range of fire safety issues in support of the NFPA mission. The Foundation, an affiliate of NFPA, was born out of a growing need for research that better informs the expanding body of NFPA codes and standards in 1982. Today, as it celebrates its 40th Anniversary, the FPRF has a much broader reach, given a wide array of emerging hazards, persistent life safety challenges, and global demand.
