Alisa Baer, better known as the The Car Seat Lady, helped The Stir develop these drawings and examined them from start to finish to ensure accuracy and safety. The US Department of Labor has a division called Occupational Safety and Health Administration, otherwise known as OSHA. If you are an employer looking for more guidance regarding workplace preparedness, and are ready to delve into the regulations surrounding this area, OSHA – Occupational Safety and Health Administration — has published a number of informational factsheets on workplace emergencies and workplace preparedness. NFPA's Safety Source blog features news and information created to reduce fire deaths, injuries, and property loss.
NFPA is a global organization devoted to eliminating death, injury, property and economic loss due to fire, electrical and related hazards. The views expressed on this blog reflect the personal opinion of the individual author and do not necessarily represent the views or policies of NFPA, its technical committees, or other constituent parts.
As I have mentioned in past posts, NFPA has been working with the folks at Martha Stewart Living to provide important fire safety tips for all of the projects and activities we do at home and with our families. Find other great resources for Halloween fire safety on our updated Halloween webpage. Remember to stay fire safe this Halloween holiday, everyone, and have a fun and festive All Hallows Eve!

In September, NFPA launched its newest wildfire safety campaign for youth called TakeAction. NFPA has created a number of great fire safety resources that can be helpful when you’re cooking up a bounty of veggies, meat and fish on the grill.
With the start of the school year almost upon us, help us spread the word and raise fire safety awareness on college campuses starting with the students you love!
While the initiative is in its infancy, the group has already been working on ideas to promote fire and life safety in 2015 on campuses across the country through social media platforms and the web. NFPA is excited to be working together with the members of the Fire Science Club at the University of New Haven and The Center, and look forward to working on projects and developing materials for college students and their parents. During the interview you'll hear from the experts and our host about their personal experiences with evacuation, and learn some great tips and advice you can use for your own pets as you prepare. For more pet preparedness tips, check out our pet safety tips sheet, available to download now on NFPA's safety information webpage. Why not take advantage of this campaign to involve family members in projects that can help you build a safer place to live.
Our “Simple Test for Checking Gas Grill Leaks” video is a quick and easy way to get all the information you need to prepare your grill safely before the guests arrive.

Students can also submit a 200-word paragraph about the steps they will take to help keep themselves and their peers safer from fire.
The Center states that from 2000 through October 2014, 126 students died in 89 fires on college campuses, in Greek housing, or in privately owned off-campus housing within three miles of the campus. The initiative is being spearheaded by the University of New Haven's Fire Science Club, with active support from The Center and NFPA.
So, a few years ago, members of our wildland fire operations division organized a handful of workshops around the country and met with teens and their parents who had lived through a wildfire in their area, and asked them about their experience.
This document covers all the items listed in the fact sheet above, with particular attention to fires and evacuations. At least four fatal off-campus fires have occurred this year, including deaths in South Dakota, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and Washington D.C. The students in the workshops told us that even more than material goods, they wanted to make sure their pets stayed safe during a wildfire evacuation, but they weren't sure how to do that.
