    Attached is a brochure for the Ninth Annual Fire Safety Conference, sponsored by the Greater Atlanta Chapter of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers on March 11, 12, and 13, 2013. 


    2013 Conference Brochure.pdf


    Once again, we have two days of pre-conference seminars.  These seminars cover a broad range of current fire protection engineering topics such as:  Fire and Evacuation Modeling; Principals of FPE; Changes to NFPA standards; Fire Pumps (including a tour of a local pump manufacturer); Combustible Dust; Emerging Technology; Fire Alarm ITM and, of course, How to Study for the FPE/PE Exam.


    On Wednesday, we have our Fire Safety Conference.  The conference has expanded to five different tracks offering programs that appeal to all facets of the fire safety community:  engineers, contractors, fire service members, and insurance underwriters.  


    Attendees receive a great value, three days of training for between $449 and $599.  AHJs can attend all three days for between $199 and $299.  For those who attend the seminar How To Study For The FPE/PE Exam, the Fire Safety Conference is FREE!  Please see the attached brochure for more pricing options.


    The Fire Safety Conference and Pre-Conference seminars continue to be a great (and relatively inexpensive) way to stay abreast of fire protection engineering topics and earn continuing education to maintain engineering licensure and other certifications.
