Fire engineering is the application of science and engineering principles to protect life, property and environment from fire hazards. However, in modern society, fire safety and fire fighting could only be effective when professionals from various disciplines are working closely together as a team. On the front line, the fire fighters put out fire and save life; on the other end, we have ordinance and regulations enforced by Fire Services Department and Buildings Department; then there are provisions of fire equipment by suppliers, consultants and engineers; and finally, fire safety could not be guaranteed without a sound design to provide proper means of escape, means of access, so on and so forth. Fire engineer has an understanding of the interactions and integration of fire safety systems in buildings, industrial structures and similar facilities. The speaker will give a presentation on the routes to achieving fire engineer. Following the presentation, Ir Leung will be available to answer any specific questions regarding application forms and general questions about the membership. The application procedures and considerations for choosing a competent fire engineer will also be discussed in the technical talk.
