Copyright © Wisconsin Chapter - Society of Fire Protection Engineers
The objectives of the Wisconsin Chapter of SFPE shall be to advance the art and science 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 Wisconsin Chapter is comprised of designers, reviewers, public and private sector code consultants, code enforcement and insurance agency representatives along with the ever growing college students. We welcome anyone sharing the same interest in the application of science, engineering principles and experience to protect people and their environments from the destructive effects of fire.
Bi-monthly dinners meetings, usually featuring a technical presentation relating to fire protection engineering, are scheduled from September through June each year. The Chapter also hosts an annual Symposium in the fall.

Founded in 1950 as a section of the National Fire Protection Association, SFPE became an independent organization in 1971 for the purpose of advancing the art and science of fire protection engineering and its allied fields, maintaining high ethical standards among its members and fostering fire protection engineering education.
