NFPA Fire and Life Safety Ecosystem When it comes to fire prevention and protection, safety is not something we can take lightly. The NFPA Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem ™ is a framework that identifies the components that should work together to reduce risk and help prevent loss, injury, and death from fire, electricity, and other hazards.
There are eight key components in the Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem ™. These parts depend on others. When they work together, Ecosystem protects everyone. If any part is missing or broken, the Ecosystem may collapse, often leading to disaster. We can almost always trace the cause of life-threatening incidents and disasters back to the division of one or more divisions as a result of the NFPA Fire Viewing Services.
The NFPA with certified Fire Watch Guards is committed to improving the Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem to protect individuals and property from evolving safety threats, and seeks to work with others who are part of this critical system. You can also view this information in Español and em Português.
According to the NFPA, to address the problem of veld fires, these five principles must be supported by all levels of government:
Requires all homes and businesses in the wildland urban interface (WUI) to be more resistant to wildfires and flames
Current codes and standards, as well as sound land use procedures, should be applied and enforced in order to develop and rebuild in high-risk areas.
The public fire departments in WUI must be prepared to respond safely and effectively to veld fires
The government should increase resources to control vegetable oil on public land
The public should understand their role and take steps to reduce the risk of wildfires
