SFPE Issues Call for Papers for Its Annual Symposium

01/05/2006


The Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE), Bethesda, Md., has issued a call for papers for its annual symposium entitled Partners for Protection: Fire Protection Engineers and the Fire Service. The symposium will be held Oct. 17 and 18, 2006, in Ellicott City, Md.

Presentations about recent advancements in fire-protection engineering related to the fire service are sought for this symposium, and may address topics such as: firefighter safety, fire investigations, incident information systems, wildland-urban interface, mass notification, manual fire suppression agents, and fire department interface with fire-protection systems.The emphasis is on engineering design and how it applies to the fire service.

“The fire-service and fire-protection engineers work together to make our communities safe from fire. Each share common goals: protection of life and property from fire,” said SFPE Engineering Program Manager Chris Jelenewicz. “This symposium will focus on how fire protection engineers work in concert with the fire service to achieve common fire safety goals.”

Abstracts are due by March 6, 2006. Submittal requirements can be found at www.sfpe.org .
