Boston conference to examine lessons of Station fire
Rhode Island and Massachusetts fire marshals and experts from the National Fire Protection Association will convene in Boston this afternoon to discuss whether the two states have done enough to protect residents from a disaster similar to The Station nightclub fire.
One of the worst fires in the state’s history, The Station fire killed 100 people and injured more than 200.
The conversation today is part of the NFPA's World Safety Conference.
It’s scheduled from 2:15 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.
The National Fire Protection Association is the leading organization on fire prevention and building and life safety.
Speakers today include the Massachusetts state fire marshal, Rhode Island’s assistant state fire marshal and former state fire marshal, who recently became chief of the Providence Fire Department, and experts from the National Institute of Standards & Technology and the NFPA.
