The Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) has announced its sponsorship of Building Safety Month, a worldwide campaign presented by the International Code Council aimed at promoting building safety.

Taking place in May 2023, the campaign raises awareness of the need to ensure safety in the buildings in which we live, work, and learn, making the connection between building codes and personal safety, and highlighting the important work of building safety professionals in communities worldwide.

From SFPE’s fire protection engineering standards, to the annual SFPE P.E. 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,” said Kevin Mlutkowski, CAE, Director of Community Engagement, Marketing, and Communications at SFPE. “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.”
