Mickalide, PhD, MCHES, principal investigator and program director, Emergency Medical Services for Children’s National Resource Center at Children’s National Health System and member of NFPA’s Association Burn Prevention Award, presented at the opening plenary at the 47th Annual Meeting in Chicago last month.

Over the course of her career, Dr. Mickalide has been engaged in fire and burn prevention initiatives. At the Home Safety Council, she led education and outreach efforts for several award-winning FEMA-funded programs.

Dr. Mickalide has been a member of EMAC since 2011. The committee of fire and life safety experts meets periodically to review NFPA’s fire safety education messages and provide recommendations to NFPA public education staff for updating and revising the Educational Messages Desk Reference, a standardized guide of fire and life safety messages.
