Acronym "National Fire Protection Association". A standards and best practice body for the fire service. Slang: Not For Practical Application. This is firefighter slang referring to the seemingly 'useless' regulations of the NFPA. This phrase is commonly used by rural fire departments whose chiefs or officers operate "old school", instead of "by the book". Slang: "No Free Publications Available" referring to publications that "all are encouraged to practice" yet are prohibitively expensive, as in "That standards document is NFPA." The NFPA slang is typically used in smaller fire departments where such a purchase would be a non-reimbursed out of pocket personal expense.
The National Fire Protection Association, a research group which sets a number of standards and best practices for *firefighting, equipment, and fire protection in the United States, and also adopted in many other countries. Also, slang for No Free Publications Available"; used to reference any "must-have" documents that are prohibitively expensive.
