A few NFPA items you may find of interest/helpful.
NFPA Sparky copyright process – This is a new page on our website that guides you through the process for using Sparky imaging on fire-prevention vehicles, and in images you create for social media, etc. It looks complex but it isn’t, and we guarantee a response within two weeks! https://www.nfpa.org/TERMSOFUSE
NFPA Xchange – This is our public-education discussion forum (there are other discussion areas too – click on the NFPA/Xchange icon on the top left to navigate to other topics) https://community.nfpa.org/community/open-xchange/public-education There is GREAT information here and Xchange is a wonderful vehicle through which you can communicate with other fire prevention offices and/or fire- and life-safety officers, and chief officers. Use it!! 🙂
