NFPA is on the lookout for a Fire and Life Safety Educator of the Year

title

By Lisa Braxton

Are you a fire and life safety educator who takes a lead role in making your community safer? Do you work for a local fire department or fire marshal’s office, use NFPA materials in a creative and consistent way, demonstrate excellence and innovation? If so, you’ll want to consider putting your name in nomination for the 2016 Fire and Life Safety Educator of the Year Award. The winning educator will receive a $1,000 honorarium, travel to Las Vegas in June for an award presentation at the general session of the NFPA Conference and $1,000 donated to the educator’s local fire department to support public education activities.

Or, if you know of an educator who you feel should be considered for the award, you can put that person’s name in nomination. The deadline to submit the nomination form is February 12, 2016.
