As number of U.S. multigenerational households continues to rise, NFPA and CPSC develop toolkit to address associated fire safety challenges

While these living arrangements offer many benefits, they also present potential fire safety challenges. With that understanding, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have developed a multigenerational toolkit featuring tips and recommendations to help increase multigenerational households’ safety from fire.
