Duluth, GA (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
Continuing education is important in many fields and fire safety is no exception. With rapidly changing technology and code updates, upgrading skills and the ability to adapt to new situations is essential for professionals in the industry. Atlanta-metro based firm, Harrington Group, Inc., is committed to fostering continuing education for fire protection engineers and other fire safety professionals and is proud to announce their supporting sponsorship of the SFPE Greater Atlanta Chapter’s upcoming 2013 Fire Safety Conference. The Conference will be held March 11th through March 13th at the Gwinnett Center in Duluth, GA and is one of the most prevalent and well-attended fire safety conferences in the nation that provides professional development hours for those attending. The conference offers top-notch, expert speakers and typically draws several hundreds of fire safety professionals from around the United States and even from Europe.
In addition to providing educational opportunities during the Conference, proceeds support the SFPE Greater Atlanta Chapter’s Fire Protection Engineering Scholarship Program. Last year, fire safety professionals that attended the conference helped to fund scholarships to the University of Maryland, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and Cal Poly.
Harrington Group is excited to help cultivate continuing learning and sponsoring the Greater Atlanta Chapter of SFPE’s Fire Safety Conference is a perfect means to do so. This year’s Conference will provide educational opportunities in the areas of combustible dust, NFPA code updates, fire modeling, and performance-based design.
