Due to the change in format, SFPE is overhauling our existing PE Exam...Prep Course for 2020. We are looking for up to 12 Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to serve as developers and instructors. SFPE will offer an honorarium to those volunteers for the delivery of the content.

SFPE is currently in the process of drafting the sixth edition of the SFPE Handbook of Fire Protection Engineering. A peer review of the content in the fifth edition... will be conducted as part of this process. The purpose of this peer review is to organize an independent review of each chapter and reviews across chapters. The goal of the review will be to suggest potential technical weaknesses, duplicate content, overlaps between chapters, areas for working examples, and new or innovative content. If you are interested in participating as a peer reviewer, contact Chris Jelenewicz
Fire safety was largely absent from the themes of Horizon 2020 and this risks
recurring in Horizon Europe, despite increasing awareness of the importance

A meeting organized by IAFSS, in Brussels on 3rd December, brought together key stakeholders
from across Europe and DG Research, DG GROW and JRC.
