    The Ninth Annual Fire Safety Conference, sponsored by the Greater Atlanta Chapter of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers will be held on March 11, 12, and 13, 2013.

    Once again, there will be 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.

    Wednesday is the 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 conference 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.

    The Canadian Fire Safety Association is pleased to announce three upcoming technical sessions that may be of interest to Chapter members. Note that the “Orillia Student Housing” one includes a lunch, and the intent is to have an extensive discussion period following the presentation, to identify key safety issues regarding student housing and propose some solutions and next steps. 

    Chapter members will enjoy the “member rate”. Simply indicate that you are an SFPE SOC member and write the name "Susan Clarke" on the registration form so that the Registrar will honour the offer.

    The SFPE St. Lawrence Chapter is sponsoring the Dust Explosion: Hazard Recognition, Assessment and Management. The course will take place on January 21-22, 2013 at Sandman Hotel in Longueuil, Canada.

    This two-day course covers the chemistry and physics of dust deflagrations, the process and progress of dust explosions, and the means by which the dust explosion hazard can be managed in both prescriptive and performance-based design environment.  Several sample problems will be included as part of the seminar content.

    Participants should bring with them a scientific calculator, scratch paper and current editions of NFPA 68, 69 and 654 for working the course problems.
