NFPA Will Manage Charitable Money to Fund ‘Enforcers’
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) will receive and distribute the proceeds of a new charitable fund designed to assist fire service and other public officials in participating in the NFPA Signaling Systems Project, the standards development endeavor that develops NFPA 72, National Fire Alarm Code®.
Once it’s up and running, the program known as the NFPA Signaling Systems Project Enforcer Participation Fund, will make grant money available to cover travel and other costs of committee members on the Signaling Systems Project, who are classified according to NFPA procedures as “enforcers.”
NFPA continually seeks the active participation of the fire service and other enforcement officials throughout NFPA’s consensus standards development activities, including the technical committees that make up the Signaling Systems Project. The participants are charged with enforcing the requirements of the National Fire Alarm Code in communities throughout the United States.
The fund’s organizers are currently in the process of launching their fundraising efforts. They have set an initial goal of $250,000, with annual distributions commencing upon reaching the benchmark.
