NFPA Appoints New Wildland Fire Protection Manager

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has appointed Dave Nuss as the Wildland Fire Protection Division manager. He will manage all of NFPA’s wildland fire activities, including the Firewise Communities program, and will expand NFPA’s role in national and international wildfire partnerships. Nuss was promoted from NFPA’s Denver Region where he provided support and outreach in a 10-state region to NFPA members, fire service professionals, code officials, and other health and safety advocates since 1999.

“Dave is a tireless champion of fire safety and public education,” said Gary Keith, NFPA vice president of field operations and education. “He was a natural choice to head NFPA’s growing involvement in wildfire challenges as fires continue to burn hotter and faster than ever before.”

In the new position, Nuss will oversee NFPA’s wildfire codes and standards for public safety, coordinate a new advisory board of federal, state and non-profit representatives, and expand wildfire safety and training opportunities for fire service professionals.

“I’ve devoted my career to fire safety and prevention,” Nuss said. “In my next chapter, I will enhance NFPA’s wildfire initiatives to not only provide critical fire safety training, but to increase promotion of Firewise principles in community and building design.”

Nuss is a career firefighter and progressed through the ranks to deputy chief. He has served more than 22 years in Colorado and Oregon. As a firefighter, he participated in various state and national committees regarding technical fire code development and public education and outreach. A graduate of the National Fire Academy’s Executive Fire Officer Program, Nuss has a bachelor’s degree in technical management from Regis University in Denver and a graduate degree in public administration from the University of Colorado Denver School of Public Affairs.
