|The authority on fire, electrical, and building safety.
The mission of the international nonprofit NFPA is to reduce the
worldwide burden of fire and other hazards on the quality of life by
providing and advocating consensus codes and standards, research, training, and education.
NFPA membership totals more than 79,000 individuals from around the
world and more than 80 national trade and professional organizations.
Established in 1896, NFPA serves as the world's
leading advocate of fire prevention and is an authoritative source on
public safety. In fact, NFPA's 300 codes and standards influence every
building, process, service, design, and installation in the United
States, as well as many of those used in other countries. NFPA's focus
on true consensus has helped the association's code-development process
earn accreditation from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
