SFPE Europe


The SFPE Europe meets regularly to exchange reports on activities within each country in Europe, to share information about fire protection engineering, and to seek ways to advance common objectives. In doing so it has been observed that the European chapters share many cultural, regulatory, professional practice and educational attributes, needs and opportunities, and that the chapters, therefore, will strengthen and realize greater benefit through the continued sharing of experiences and practices of fire protection engineering and efforts towards common objectives within the European Union through regular meetings and exchange. All the European Chapters comprise SFPE Europe.
