Chesapeake Chapter


The SFPE Chesapeake Chapter has been serving the Fire Protection Community in the Metropolitan Washington DC and Baltimore areas since its founding in 1956.

The purpose of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers is to advance the science and practice of fire protection engineering and its allied fields, to maintain a high ethical standard among its members, and to foster fire protection engineering education. The Society supports the development of the annual Professional Engineer licensing exam in fire protection and the grading of those exams under the auspices of the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying. Volunteer committees and task groups work under the Society’s auspices to further advance the state of the art. The Society’s activities include a series of educational seminars and short courses, technical symposia and conferences, books and publications designed to advance the state of the art of fire protection engineering, and provide technical information to the fire protection community.
