Why Join SFPE?

Avatar

"SFPE has helped me broaden my career beyond what I thought was possible. I have been able to work with others within the fire protection engineering field internationally by getting involved in committee work and attending conferences. As the chair of the higher education committee, I have expanded my network and feel that I am impacting students, educators, and other professionals as to the future of fire protection engineering." ~ Virginia R. Charter, P.E., Professional Member since 2006

The society not only connects me to other fire protection engineers, but also provides education and resources to further my understanding of the discipline." ~ David Morrisset, Student Member since 2018
