Fire Protection Engineers’ Annual Meeting and Conference Set for October


The Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) 2005 Annual Meeting and Professional Development Conference kicks off on Monday, Oct. 17, in California, at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla.

The week’s events will illustrate the “wave of the future” in fire-protection engineering, say SFPE officials. The annual meeting will be followed by the Awards and Honors Banquet and will feature a special presentation by former SR-71 pilot Colonel Buz Carpenter entitled "Recognizing Achievement - Performance and Protection.”

Four days of educational events that demonstrate how science and technology are used to make the world safe from fire will start on Oct. 18. This includes a symposium on advances in fire suppression technologies, nine seminars and the Engineering Technology Showcase.

Presentations for the Advances in Fire Suppression Technologies Symposium entitled Develop and Engineer New Fire Suppression Solutions to Protect People, Environment and Property on October 18 and 19 will focus on the state of the art in fire protection for critical or sensitive areas.

The seminars include a wide range of topics including: a) Principals of Fire Protection Engineering, b) Smoke Control Session 1-- Fundamentals & Pressurization Systems, c) Smoke Control Session 2 -- Design Fires, Atrium Control and Tenability Systems, d) Sprinkler Design for the Engineer, e) Introduction to Structural Fire Protection, f) Advanced Fire Dynamics Simulator and Smokeview, g) Human Behavior in Fire, h) How to Study for the Fire Protection Engineering Professional Engineering Exam, and i) Dust Explosions.
