You can help influence fire safety codes and standards. The National Fire Protection Association is currently accepting public comment on quite a few standards, including NFPA 1221 Standard for the Installation, Maintenance, and Use of Emergency Services Communications Systems, NFPA 914 Code for Fire Protection of Historic Structures and NFPA 214 Standard on Water-Cooling Towers.

You can comment on these and many others at www.nfpa.org/.../list_of_codes_and_standards.asp
