The Fire Protection Association of Australia (FPA Australia) is a nonprofit organization seeking to provide a means by which clients of the fire protection industry can identify companies dedicated to fire safety and ethical business practice. To accomplish this, FPA Australia recently instituted a Code of Practice outlining standards for their member companies to follow. The goal of this project is to identify and evaluate tools for education and communication on, as well as the use and promotion of, the Code of Practice. Once members have been educated on the code, they can implement it and then promote this compliance to their clients.
