NFPA is on the lookout for innovative educators


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? Use NFPA materials in a creative and consistent way? Demonstrate excellence and innovation? If so, you’ll want to consider applying for the 2015 Fire and Life Safety Educator of the Year Award.

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 winning educator will receive a $1,000 honorarium, travel to Chicago 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.The application deadline is February 20, 2015.
