The mission of this Chapter is to reinforce the objective of the Society of Professional Fire Protection Engineers. The Chapter will define, develop, and advance the use of engineering best practices; expand the scientific/technical knowledge base; educate the global fire safety community in order to reduce fire risk.


Are you looking to get more involved in the Southern California chapter of SFPE? Come to our events! Our members and visitors always enjoy our monthly meetings. Join one of our planning committees and volunteer your time!

We have a committee for administration, relationships, scholarship, symposium, golf tournament, social media, annual audit, nominations, and the budget!


The Chapter will be hosting a virtual event this year! Please check out the Events tab for all the details and information on how to register. We are asking for Sponsors this year as well but there will be no exhibitors like there have been in the past.

A special thanks from the Board to the Symposium Committee. They have been planning this year's event since November and have been working tirelessly to change over to a virtual format in the past few  weeks. Thank you Chris Reimer, Chris Wicker, Jeff Halpert, Ray Bizal, Gregg Vhlakais, Meghan Goodwin, and Michele Knight Vail!


Does your company want to sponsor the Symposium this year? Your logo will be shown during each session of the virtual event. Your company's information will be shown on the website until next year's event. The cost of the sponsorship will be $300. Sign up under the event!


I hope everybody is staying healthy and safe out there! If you would like to post a job opening on the website, please reach out to the Webmaster at Let's support each other during these trying times. - Thank you, Steven Dannaway
