President's Welcome

Welcome to the NCNSFPE website

The Society of Fire Protection Engineers was established in 1950 and incorporated as an independent organization in 1971. It is the professional society representing those practicing in the field of fire protection engineering. The Society has approximately 4,100 members in the United States and abroad, and 51 regional chapters, 10 of which are outside the US.

The Northern California/Nevada Chapter of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (NCN SFPE) was founded on January 27, 1954 in San Francisco. The purpose of the Society 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 Engineering licensing exam in fire protection and grading of those exams under the auspices of the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying. Several volunteer committees and task groups work under the Society’s auspices on technical projects to further advance the state of the art and to provide continuous learning opportunities and scholarships to qualified applicants that are pursuing higher education in the field of fire protection engineering.

NCN SFPE Chapter meetings are held on the third Friday of each month, except July, August and December and are held at various locations throughout the San Francisco area (refer to the Events page for upcoming chapter meeting locations). The NCN SFPE chapter is dedicated to the providing its chapter members opportunities to network with colleagues, local building and fire officials, industry equipment suppliers, installation contractors, property owners and experts in the field of fire protection engineering.
