Featuring more than 40 fire and life safety seminars, the 2001 National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Fall Education Conference will be held Nov. 10-14 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Dallas.

Code-related seminars will outline more than 300 significant changes to the 2002 Edition of the National Electrical Code and provide an update on the proposed NFPA 5000, Building Code. Other seminars will address challenges faced by emergency responders as well as fire safety considerations for people with disabilities and college students.

Journalist Morton Kondracke, executive editor of the Capitol Hill newspaper Roll Call, will deliver the keynote address. Social humorist Jimmy Tingle, of 60 Minutes II, will be the featured guest at Tuesday's luncheon.

In addition, NFPA is offering three pre-conference seminars, focusing on the fire department occupational health and safety program, life safety for health care facilities, and a primer for the Certified Fire Protection Specialist exam. The conference will also host the Third Annual International Fire Marshals Conference and a technical committee report session, during which more than 30 NFPA codes and standards will be considered for voting by the membership.

The deadline for advance registration is Oct. 26. For more information or to register online, visit www.nfpa.org.
