The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) announced today that AFG (Assistance to Firefighters Grant) grant applicants will have complimentary online access to 27 NFPA codes referenced in the grant program. Access is available through a special web portal through September 9, the end of the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) grant application period.
“With online access to the relevant NFPA codes at no cost, applicants will be able to more fully insure their applications are meeting the goal of the AFG programs which is to enhance first responder safety and survival,” said Ken Willette, division manager of Public Fire Protection for NFPA. The AFG program references 27 NFPA codes covering equipment, training and operating procedures for first responders.
The dedicated web portal to download these codes is www.nfpa.org/nfpaafg2011.
