Statewide hoarding task force kicks off at North Carolina Education Conference

title

By Kelly Ransdell

Recently, I had the opportunity to participate in the kickoff to the North Carolina (NC) hoarding task force. At the 39e annual NC Education Conference, it was announced that the task force was up and running. This task force was a result of a workshop over three years ago offered by NFPA about Hoarding for the Fire Service. Besides conducting workshops, the staff at NFPA has been working on programs to offer at state meetings and tips for consumers. The safety tip sheet that can be used to educate firefighters on the dangers of hoarding is available as well as an NFPA Journal articles online. I am excited about the resources and help that this statewide task force will give to local fire marshals and fire departments in NC. Congratulations NC!
