Employees of the NPS Structural Fire Branch never stop encouraging people to have working smoke alarms and a plan for getting out. They encourage people to be especially vigilant in historic buildings, which can be fire-prone. The branch has helped coordinate the retrofitting of some important NPS buildings for facilities and life safety. They work with park concessionaires to ensure the safety of those buildings as well. They encourage people to learn from past fires to help prevent future fires.
