NFPA 1452: Guide for Training Fire Service Personnel to Conduct Dwelling Fire Safety Surveys provides fire department training officers or other fire service personnel with basic guidance on elements to include in a locally developed dwelling fire safety program. Principles can be applied to single-family as well as multi-family dwellings in both rural and urban communities.

The 2010 NFPA 1452 encourages community-wide hazards education.

Important updates include a new chapter that encourages a fire department or organization to expand their public service and education program to include other major hazards, both natural and human caused. This opens the possibilities for an all-hazard community-wide education program, coordinated with other organizations and resources.

Other revisions help reduce common hazards in a comprehensive approach to fire safety.

Used together with NFPA 1144: Reducing Structure Ignition Hazards from Wildland Fire, the 2010 edition of NFPA 1452 provides a more complete approach to reducing fire hazards "inside and outside" homes, dwellings, and other structures. The chapter on wildland/urban interface hazards is completely revised to reflect the 2008 edition of NFPA 1144. This revised approach to inspecting or surveying of properties in the wildland/urban interface includes information from the NFPA Firewise Communities program and other NFPA® documents.

This important edition of NFPA 1452 is essential for community leaders as well as fire fighters, public educators, fire service training, company officers, inspectors, and wildland fire personnel. (Softbound, 19 pp., 2010)
