QUINCY, Mass. — Asia Pacific operations of the National Fire Protection (NFPA) have been moved from Melbourne, Australia, to Hong Kong. According to the NFPA, Hong Kong was chosen for its fire service leadership, including interest in global best practice.
The NFPA later this year will participate in a program for Chinese city officials at the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center in Bangkok; fire prevention methods will be examined and discussed from the perspective of last year�s shopping center fire that killed more than 300 people.
