Fire safety engineering is growing rapidly in many European countries. SFPE’s European chapters will host a conference in February 2018 in Rotterdam to address critical topics and challenges facing the profession.
12th International Conference on Performance-Based Codes and Fire Safety Design Methods
SFPE conference will provide an excellent global opportunity to address current and future trends in building and fire regulatory systems, the contribution of fire protection engineers to innovative design solutions, and the latest developments in fire modelling, risk assessment and analysis in support of those solutions and their approvals.
SFPE Seeking Committee VolunteersVolunteers are at the heart of SFPE‘s work. Without volunteers’ time and expertise, SFPE simply could not provide the essential technical standards and guidelines, information and tools, vibrant community, and exceptional experiences that we all value so highly. Together, we accomplish remarkable things and are moving the fire protection engineering profession forward throughout the world. Donate your time to a SFPE Committee.
