"Please see the U.S. Fire Administration’s Emergency Management and Response Information Sharing and Analysis Center (EMR-ISAC) 02 JUL 2020 Infogram email chain below and the attached PDF file. The article titled “New NFPA guides on ensuring building safety as locations reopen” has links to free informational resources from the National Fire Protection Association. NFPA created a checklist and the New Normal Fact Sheet to guide building owners and facilities managers through the reopening process, helping them make sure they aren’t overlooking anything. There is also a recorded webinar covering the available NFPA resources.


Thank you for participating in the Voluntary Protection Program."
