Fire and Life Safety codes play an important, yet often unseen, role in our lives. The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation is looking to tell the stories of how fire and life safety codes have impacted your community, department and personnel.
This could be lives saved because a new code went into effect, new code efforts that are being driven by the result of a tragedy or close calls, personal stories and more.
These stories may be included as part of an exciting new series of short documentaries which will inform the public in a creative and engaging way about the critical role fire and life safety codes play in everyday life — at home, at work, at play, in transit, at school and beyond.
Who should submit?
Any member of the fire/rescue service, community, industry or government as well as citizens and residents of jurisdictions who embrace or bump up against codes every single day.
What should I submit?
Beyond the big incidents that we all know about, such as the recent and tragic Notre Dame fire, most all fire and life safety codes result from incidents where a behavioral modifier (a code!) could have made a difference, like with all-too-common firework mishandling instances. Whether you have a recent incident or a historic event to share, we want to hear about your experiences.
