Five Companies Achieve Legacy Builder Status in NFPA Foundation

NFPA’s many workforce development programs are made possible in part by the generous support of industry volunteers as well as NFPA Education and Technology Foundation and Pascal Society donors. Support these efforts by making a donation.

At the recent NFPA Annual Conference in Miami, five more companies were recognized for reaching Legacy Builder status in the NFPA Foundation.

When NFPA started the NFPA Foundation back in 2007, we created the Legacy Builder Award, to be given out at each year’s Annual Conference to any company that has reached cumulative donations of $25,000 or more. Since that time, 39 companies have reached that milestone, not including the five who were welcomed to this exclusive club this year.

Congratulations, and many thanks, to all five of these companies:

  • Daman Products Company
  • Kawasaki Precision Machinery
  • Muncie Power Products
  • Norgren & Bimba
  • SunSource
