Welcome to the Greater St. Louis Chapter of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers website.  To find out what is happening with our chapter, take a look at the latest edition of our Burning Issue monthly newsletter or our Calendar of Events.  Currently, there are several seminars planned for this region over the next several months.

For students pursuing the study of fire protection engineering, or a related field of engineering, we have two annual scholarships available.  Scholarship applications are due by April 15th of the year.

For professionals we have monthly meetings which occur on the third Monday of each month with the exception of June, July, August, and December.  Our monthly meetings provide an oppurtunity to meet other similarly minded professionals while staying abreast of the latest techonologies and concepts in the fire protection community.  For retired professionals, your membership dues are waived.  If you are interested in joining the Greater St. Louis Chapter of SFPE see the membership page.

If you are interested in presenting a topic, or know of someone who is interested in presenting at one of our monthly meetings, please contact the Vice President at
