New England Chapter Newsletter 

Summer 2019

Dear Membership,

We hope this newsletter finds you enjoying your summer and beating the heat. As the Board reviews this past year, we feel that the 2018-19 calendar year was another success. (Sneak peak – SFPE New England will again be receiving the GOLD Award for Chapter Excellence at October’s International Conference in Arizona!)

We hope you enjoyed all the events throughout the year. Our fall and winter warmed up with our lineup of fire protection topics ranging from fire modeling to managing corrosion risk in water-based fire sprinkler systems. Winter is always a great time to gather with colleagues for great conversation and food.

The Annual SFPE-NEC 2019 Annual Fire Protection & Life Safety Seminar was yet again an outstanding success, with current and relevant educational sessions and informative exhibitions by our participating vendors.  We would like to sincerely thank all of our presenters as well as vendors for your support of this event. At the seminar, we were also proud to present The Fire Service Grants to this year’s winners – Everett, Randolph, and Sherman fire departments!
