title

By Lisa Braxton

NFPA has two new employees in the Public Education Division serving as regional education specialists. Meredith Hawes (left) will cover the central region and Mid-Atlantic States. Kelly Ransdell will cover the southern United States and New England region. Meredith was an NFPA public education advisor for the central region of the country and was the fire and life safety public educator for the Grand Traverse Metro Fire Department of Northern Michigan. Kelly was the NFPA public education advisor for the southern region and deputy director of the Prevention and Programs Division of the North Carolina Department of Insurance, Office of the State Fire Marshal.

The Public Education Regional Specialists will work remotely and be responsible for promoting the use of NFPA fire-safety education materials at the state and local levels. They will serve in an ambassadorial role for the association on a regional level by being spokespersons for all NFPA public education and advocacy initiatives, and will provide an NFPA presence for fire departments in the region while coordinating field activities with Association staff.

The search continues for a third regional education specialist to cover the western United States.
