NFPA Events App

To access the app for the 2018 IEOC, attendees should sign in using the email they provided when registering for the conference. The initial password has been set to “nfpa2018” for all IEOC attendees. IEOC attendees who used the app for a previous NFPA event and still have the app on their devices don’t need to redownload the app.
