The National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) 2012 NFPA Conference & Expo, presented by ROC-NFPA, LLC , is a four-day opportunity for fire and life safety professionals to share best practices, find solutions to safety challenges, and stay abreast of technological innovations in their fields. The conference will be held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas June 11-14.

Attendees will have more than 130 education sessions to choose from in 12 tracks, plus opportunities to learn more about the latest fire and safety-related products presented by 300 exhibitors. 

This year’s featured presentation, “9/11: Leadership Before and After the Crisis,” given by Chief Jay Jonas, a deputy chief in the New York City Fire Department, will take place on Tuesday, June 12. Jonas is one of only 20 people who remained inside the Twin Towers when they collapsed and survived the incident.

Award-winning entertainer Gordie Brown, who is well-known for his fast-paced comedy and vast repertoire of celebrity impressions, will be performing at the conference. As a multi-talented performer, Brown has developed a show that is constantly evolving to incorporate fresh, new impressions so guests never get the same performance twice.

The Association Technical Meeting, a collaborative forum for experts to set the stage for new safety and building standards, will begin at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, June 13.

Visit the 2012 Conference & Expo blog to stay current on general news about the conference as well as updates on education sessions and tracks. To learn more about the Conference & Expo, visit and register to attend.
