Dubai, UAE: The Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) has lent its support for the 1st Annual Middle East HVAC Fire Safety Conference, to be held on May 9 at the Habtoor Grand Beach Resort & Spa, in Dubai.

Produced by CPI Industry, the publishers of Climate Control Middle East magazine, the conference will be addressing several fire safety issues with a strong HVAC imprint to them. Among various topics, the conference will be examining the factors to be considered while selecting the best equipment, to ensure appropriate civil defense regulations and projects requirements are met; the liability of the client, contractor and manufacturer of fire safety equipment used on a project; and the building fire protection safety audits for Existing Buildings – the common fire protection-related pitfalls found during audits of Existing Buildings.

The Society’s endorsement of the Conference is a shot in the arm, for it gives technical heft to the discussions and widespread participation of the entire fire safety-related stakeholder community in the UAE. In a further boost, the conference will be moderated by Shamim Rashid-Sumar, President of the UAE International Chapter of the Society.

The Society was established in 1950 and incorporated as an independent organisation in 1971. It is the professional society representing those practising in the field of fire protection engineering. The Society has over 4,200 members, 66 regional and local chapters, and 15 student chapters worldwide.

The UAE Chapter of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers was established in 2009. The chapter organises monthly technical evening meetings to foster professional development and networking within the UAE fire protection engineering community.
