NFPA Fire & Life Safety Policy Institute
Policymakers play a critical role in reducing the risk of fire, electrical, and other life safety hazards for citizens. Actions like enacting and enforcing building codes and carrying out fire inspections are examples of government efforts that have contributed to the reduction in fires and associated losses, particularly in the U.S.
Moving forward, changing infrastructure, new technology, evolving risks and competing priorities will all put pressure on maintaining strong fire and life safety protection measures. The Fire & Life Safety Policy Institute will help policymakers understand and navigate these issues through analysis and recommended policy approaches to protect citizens.
