The NFPA Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem is a framework that identifies the components that must work together to minimize risk and help prevent loss, injuries, and death from fire, electrical, and other hazards.

This presentation will focus on the foundations of the eight key components in the Fire & Life Safety Ecosystem.

These components are interdependent and when they work together, the Ecosystem protects everyone. If any component is missing, broken, or deficient the Ecosystem can collapse, often resulting in tragedy, property loss, injury or loss of life..

Almost always we can trace the cause of injurious life safety incidents and tragedies back to the breakdown of one or more of the ecosystem components.
