About NFPA

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is a global self-funded nonprofit organization, established in 1896, devoted to eliminating death, injury, property and economic loss due to fire, electrical and related hazards.

Our vision: We are the leading global advocate for the elimination of death, injury, property, and economic loss due to fire, electrical and related hazards.
Our mission: To help save lives and reduce loss with information, knowledge, and passion.

NFPA delivers information and knowledge through more than 300 consensus codes and standards, research, training, education, outreach and advocacy; and by partnering with others who share an interest in furthering our mission. NFPA membership totals more than 50,000 individuals around the world.

NFPA believes that only by working together can those of us whose work affects the safety of others — from electricians to engineers to first responders — build a network of intelligence to keep our increasingly complex world safe. NFPA is committed to leading this charge,
