Welcome to the Central Virginia Chapter of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers!

The mission of the international Society of Fire Protection Engineers is “to define, develop, and advance the use of engineering best practices; expand the scientific and technical knowledge base; and educate the global fire safety community, in order to reduce fire risk.”

Our chapter supports this mission by providing educational, networking, and social opportunities for individuals working in or interested in fields related to fire protection. We hold monthly meetings in Richmond, VA from September through May, except for December. The meeting format is typically a 1 hour educational seminar, followed by a meal and social.

Come to our next meeting!




To Be Announced

Topic: F-500 Encapsulator Agent Fire Suppression Technology

Starts: 4:00 p.m. (Dinner at 5:00 p.m.)

HCT’s F-500 Encapsulator Agent’s engineered advantage is based on the high performance, three-dimensional firefighting capabilities of micelle encapsulation. This combination of attributes provides for quick knockdown and rapid heat reduction, providing permanent burnback resistance. F-500 encapsulates hydrocarbon liquids and vapors rendering fuel non-flammable and non-ignitable while interrupting free radical coalescence, inhibiting the formation of toxic soot and smoke. All of this leads to enhanced firefighting performance with increased life safety and reduced property damage while minimizing water use and the subsequent water damage and runoff.
