Task Group on Human Behavior in Fire to Revise Engineering Guide to Human Behavior in Fire

The SFPE Task Group is beginning the process of updating the SFPE Engineering Guide to Human Behavior in Fire.  It is anticipated that guidance will be incorporated into the next edition of the guide on conducting tenability analyses.  If you would like to participate in this activity, please submit an  application form.

SFPE To Create Standard on Design Fire Scenarios


The SFPE Board of Directors has approved a new standards development project on design fire scenarios to be used in performance-based design for a variety of occupancies and situations.  It is anticipated that this standard will be in a form that can be referenced by regulatory bodies.  The standard would be more detailed that the scenarios in NFPA 101 & NFPA 5000, would be more occupancy specific and would address objectives other than life safety.  The committee will likely make use of relevant work currently in process in New Zealand.    

To apply for membership on this committee, submit an application form.
