FPW offers safety coordinator a library of topics


By Lisa Braxton

The employees at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Albany, Californie, know to check the bulletins posted around their workplace every couple of weeks for the latest fire safety information. Safety Coordinator Elizabeth MacGowan rotates topics based on the seasons, holidays, and other relevant criteria. “The material on your website is awesome,” she says.

During Fire Prevention Week MacGowan says she uses the campaign logo and other graphics made available for free on the NFPA website. The safety tip sheets provide her with tools she can use during FPW and throughout the year. “I really appreciate that you have a library of topics,” she says.

What are your favorite FPW materials and how do you use them? I’d like to hear from you.
