The Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE), the world’s leading professional society for fire protection and fire safety engineering, has announced its sponsorship of Building Safety Month, a worldwide campaign presented by the International Code Council to promote building safety.
For May 2023, Building Safety Month raises awareness of the need to ensure safety in the buildings in which we live, work, and learn. The campaign makes the connection between building codes and personal safety and highlights the important work of building safety professionals in communities worldwide. From SFPE’s fire protection engineering standards, to the annual SFPE PE exam review course, to countless technical articles, handbooks, education programs, and more, SFPE ensures that fire protection engineers have the knowledge to advance building safety and engineer a fire-safe world.
“SFPE’s global community of members, chapters, and fire protection engineers works to continuously advance the scientific understanding and engineering principles of fire,” stated Kevin Mlutkowski, CAE, Director of Community Engagement, Marketing, and Communications, Society of Fire Protection Engineers. “This month during Building Safety Month, SFPE is proud to partner with the International Code Council in showcasing the roles, competencies, and life-saving work of fire protection engineers.”
