SFPE is proud to host the 2019 Annual Conference & Expo on New Frontiers in Fire Safety, which will be held on October 13-18 in Phoenix, Arizona. Technology is advancing at an extremely fast pace. Urban environments are rapidly increasing, becoming more vertical and more densely populated. More people are living in wildfire-prone areas. Climate resiliency and sustainability are creating fire safety challenges. In many ways we are entering a new frontier in fire safety challenges and opportunities.
The 2019 SFPE Annual Conference and Expo will address new and emerging technology, tools and methods (for example, related to aerospace, microgravity environments, smart building technology, smart firefighting technology, clean rooms protection, engineering design for complex facilities and unique hazards), new emerging regulatory and the design approaches (e.g., risk-informed approaches, new computational tools), challenges with fire safety in low- and middle-income countries, and advancements in fire protection in the wildland urban interface (WUI).
