The September meeting will kick things off with a look at Fire Protection Research and Education in Canada.  In the last several years Canada has introduced objective-based building and fire codes. In order to take advantage of the flexibility permitted in the new codes, research is ongoing in Canada and around the world to develop new fire protection engineering design techniques. At the same time, fire protection engineering education opportunities are being expanded. This presentation will discuss fire protection engineering research and education in Canada, highlighting some of the research that is ongoing at the University of Saskatchewan.

If you plan on attending, please contact Andrew Thomson at or call Andrew at 306.667.2513 by this Friday, September 10th.

The October meeting will actually occur Wednesday, October 13th, at the Park Town Hotel.  Tom Watson from McQuay will discuss what's happening with ASHRAE at a national level.
