NVFC Participates in Smoke Alarm Summit
April 7, 2015
The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) was one of many national fire service organizations and stakeholder groups to attend the Smoke Alarm Summit: Evidence Informing Action event on March 31 in Baltimore, MD.
The Summit, hosted by Vision 20/20 and the Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy, brought together expert stakeholders to develop a consensus set of recommendations that will help inform smoke alarm policy, practice, and research. The Summit is part of a Fire Prevention and Safety Grant awarded to Vision 20/20 to increase the number of working smoke alarms in the U.S. and increase the number of fire departments adopting community risk reduction concepts.
