SFPE Issues Call For Papers

January 27, 2006

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

Presentations about recent advancements in fire protection
engineering related to the fire service are sought for this
symposium, and may address topics such as: fire fighter
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. Or for more information contact Chris Jelenewicz at 301.718.2910 (ext. 108).
