This book addresses the growth of the profession of fire protection engineering, which involves more than just the increasing number of engineers entering the field. It also includes the development of the technologies that the engineers use as tools, the educational institutions in which the engineers are trained, and the organizations that promote professionalism among the engineers and establish standards and norms for both technologies and engineering practice.


This history also explores the evolution of this unique group of engineers, starting with their early attempts to provide means to tame fires, evolving to technologies to prevent and suppress fires, and leading to recent developments in which fires are modeled and mitigating means are tested using computers. Also examined is the close relationship between these engineers and the fire brigades and building regulators since, in many instances, their roles have merged in taming destructive fires.
