Safety Layering Update:

For the past 18 months we have been working on Safety Layering, a multi-year project with the goal of creating a matrix for code officials and others to technically evaluate layers of protection in an existing building.  We piloted the matrix on “B” occupancies as part of a DHS-FP&S grant and are working with public and private partners to expand it to include the remaining occupancy types. 




Safety Notice from Kidde
Kidde announced a voluntary recall to certain Kidde black plastic Zytel nylon valve disposable fire extinguishers.  Certain extinguishers may not fully discharge when the lever is repeatedly pressed and released.  Click here for the list.

Member Survey

NASFM will be conducting its 2nd Annual State Fire Marshals Duties and Responsibilities survey in the spring of 2015.  We will be asking each State Fire Marshal’s Office to complete the survey and return it to us for compilation and dissemination.
