Fire Protection





The Fire Protection Practice Specialty (FPPS) was founded in 2004. FPPS was formed to concentrate on fire protection, prevention, preparedness and mitigation issues. FPPS diligently addresses hot topics related to fire safety and is an invaluable resource for technical content related to this field. FPPS is led by a volunteer advisory committee with extensive experience and expertise in the field of fire safety. FPPS works hard to contribute technical content to ASSE and the safety profession through regular publications, special publications and research, virtual events and conference sessions. FPPS is open to all ASSE members.
