Last month I announced NFPA’s new partnership with the Heroes MAKE America (HMA) program of The Manufacturing Institute. Under this partnership, NFPA members will be given priority access to candidates in the program, all of whom have received training for production floor jobs in manufacturing and are looking to work in designated communities around the country.

We just received an updated list of the latest HMA graduating classes, and they have collectively chosen communities in the following U.S. states:

  • Alabama
  • Arizona
  • California
  • Colorado
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Hawaii
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Massachusetts
  • Missouri
  • Montana
  • North Carolina
  • Ohio
  • Oklahoma
  • Oregon
  • South Carolina
  • South Dakota
  • Texas
  • Virginia
  • Washington
  • West Virginia

If you have a production facility in one of these states and would like to review the resumes of the appropriate HMA candidates, please respond to me at elanke@nfpa.com.
