Calling all fire departments! The NFPA, as we do every year, has mailed out a paper version of our Fire Experience survey to each of you. We are encouraging your response to this survey as soon as you are able since the fire experience survey is critical for many reasons. This survey directly contributes to the following NFPA reports:
- Fire Loss in the United States
- U.S. Fire Department Profile
- U.S. Firefighter Injuries
- An Analysis of Volunteer Firefighter injuries
In addition, the survey results enable the NFPA, USFA and CPSC to develop national estimates for fire causes based on the annual National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS) data.
To help motivate everyone to complete their surveys on time, we are holding a drawing! All Fire Departments that submit a completed Fire Service Experience Form before April 15, 2015 will be eligible for a drawing where 8 Fire Departments will be awarded a 32 GB Wi-Fi IPAD Air and their choice of one of NFPA’s Public Fire Protection Standards!
FYI, there is now also an electronic version of this survey that can be filled out on-line. If you would like to use this electronic option go to: www.nfpa.org/FEsurvey2014 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org stating that you would like to use this option. When responding to the survey on-line, please use the Fire Department identification number that you’ll find on the top line of the address label on the paper survey.
Be sure to take a look at all of those legal terms and conditions. Thanks for your participation and good luck!
