The National Fire Protection Association defines fire protection engineering as "the science of reducing loss of life and property by fire, including both prevention and fire extinguishment by public or private means and also to the degree of which such protection is applied." Fire protection engineers assess problems confronted, through the use of engineering fundamentals, and formulates the solution that is functional and economically feasible and practicable.
Protection Engineering Services
There are many things a fire protection engineer may be involved with. These things can range from designing fire protection systems for large high-rises or large industrial complexes. Fire protection engineers can analyze the level of fire protection in commercial building and/or residential buildings and also to something as complex as nuclear power plants. Fire protection engineers can also be involved with the research of fire propagation, detection and suppression. In all of these such tasks, fire protection engineers need to be knowledgeable in using state-of-the-art procedures in analysis and design techniques. Fire protection engineers must also be knowledgeable in computer models for fire prediction.
