The Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE), a world-leading professional society for fire protection and fire safety engineering, invites fire protection engineering professionals to learn about and register for two upcoming in-person events. The SFPE Forum on Fire Protection Engineering: Challenges in Storage will be held Sept. 8-9, in Chicago, and the SFPE Seminar on Protecting Flammable and Combustible Liquids will be held Nov. 10-11 in San Antonio, Texas.
The two-day, in-person SFPE Forum on Fire Protection Engineering: Challenges in Storage, held Sept. 8-9, in Chicago, will highlight the design challenges of storage facilities that interfere with fire suppression and fire alarm systems. The Forum will feature a large-scale fire test at Underwriters Laboratories in Northbrook, Illinois, with topics and speakers including the following:
The two-day, in-person SFPE Seminar on Protecting Flammable and Combustible Liquids, held Nov. 10-11 in San Antonio, Texas, will address a broad range of issues related to safe handling and storage of flammable and combustible liquids. Led by David Nugent, Manager of Code & Project Services, Global Risk Consultants, and hosted at Southwest Research Institute, the course will include a review of certain large fire losses; fundamental risk determinants; fire testing and defining the risk; strategic planning for safe operations and storage; navigating and understanding the relevant fire codes, regulations, and standards; and using passive and active features for specific occupancies. The course features live fire demonstrations including the following:
“These two events will provide attendees with the opportunity to receive best-in-class learning and one-of-a-kind experiences to ensure they have the knowledge needed to reduce fire risk and save lives,” said Nicole Boston, CAE, CEO, Society of Fire Protection Engineers. “I encourage all engineering professionals involved in storage and flammable liquids to join our SFPE expert members in Chicago and San Antonio to learn, network, and connect with their peers.”
