The National Fire Protection Association, or NFPA, is a United States trade association. It creates and maintains private, copyrighted, standards and codes for usage and adoption by local governments. It’s in place to reduce the worldwide burden of fire and other hazards on the quality of life. Through training and education on the 380 NFPA codes and standards, NFPA devotes its time toward protecting lives and property. Some flame-resistant workwear from Working Person’s Store meets NFPA standards, so you know it’ll defend you when you’re around open flames.
