The Society has been established to foster excellence in fire safety in Australia. As a learned Society, the aims are to draw together individuals who are actively engaged in fire safety, to provide a national focus and leadership for the development, understanding, practice and application of fire safety engineering to achieve reductions of risk for life, property and environmental damage and the implementation of cost-effective fire safety codes and regulations.
Please explore our site to find out more about our Society. Some sections are accessible by all, others are for members only.
