COVID-19 Resources for NFPA Members

[Updated May 4 at 8:00 am CST] 

A collection of the latest resources from NFPA and other organizations to help NFPA members understand the effects of and make informed decisions about COVID-19.

NFPA Member Response

As part of our efforts to provide members with useful information about the implications of COVID-19, NFPA conducted two brief surveys of NFPA member companies.

The most recent survey addressed production and facility operations among member companies related to  “shelter in place” and similar orders, exemptions from these orders, new safety measures companies have put in place, as well as expectations moving forward.

The first survey’s results gauge their response to the outbreak regarding travel and meeting restrictions as well as the current and expected impacts throughout their businesses.

To highlight the essential nature of the fluid power industry, NFPA also requested members share what they are doing to support COVID-19 efforts and essential industries in this changing business climate. Here’s a list of members who responded to the call and were promoted on NFPA’s social media channels.
