About NFSC, Inc. National

National Fire Safety Council, Inc. (NFSC), a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt not-for-profit organization, is the largest distributor of comprehensive fire & burn prevention and life safety materials in the United States.

NFSC was formed in 1979 in response to the overwhelming need for fire safety materials. NFSC directs a concentrated effort toward creating a special fire safety educational program of materials and services for all ages, including children, adults, and seniors, which assist Fire Departments in helping save lives through education.

NFSC provides local fire departments with the most comprehensive resource of fire safety education materials in the world. The Council's in-house Research and Development Department is the only one of its kind in the country. Experienced educators, artists, writers, and technicians create hundreds of original materials designed for all age groups including: folders, placemats, color / activity sheets, books, games, stickers, and other educational tools. Efforts are made to compile and provide current and authoritative information that is educationally correct, age appropriate, and appealing to children, teens, adults, and seniors alike.

A Fire Service Partner since 1979, NFSC is the only fire safety organization with a network of fire safety coordinators working to support fire service agencies nationwide in their fire prevention education efforts. These materials are distributed through community programs and events and schools.

The Council has also created an efficient inventory, warehouse, and shipping system to deliver the high quality and timely service required by individual fire departments. The 45,000 square foot National Headquarters, located in Michigan Center, Michigan is where this process takes place. Our building houses offices, a mailroom & shipping department, a copy layout department, a printing department, direct mail, archives, and research & development department. Our staff takes pride in assuring that local fire departments across the nation have their programs processed in a timely manner.

NFSC leads the industry by providing thousands of public fire safety organizations across the U.S. with millions of pieces of safety materials annually. Many of NFSC's materials feature our child-friendly and non-threatening mascot, Firepup®.

NFSC, Inc. Fire Safety Coordinators provide local fire departments nationwide with the tools they need to help save lives through their customized programs & services.
