The New Jersey Chapter of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers meets the first Monday of each month excluding July and August.  Membership is only $20.00 per year and dinner meetings $30.00.

Each meeting starts with a Social Hour: cash bar at 5:00 PM followed at 6:00 with our meeting and a one-hour seminar.  We are very lucky in NJ to have members that are some of the leading authorities in the field of Fire Detection, Fire Suppression, Risk Analysis and other life safety related technical topics.  The NJ SFPE tries to have one field trip each year. Attendance at these meetings as well as membership provides CPD’s for your NICET Certification or NJ DCA Permits.  The NJ SFPE holds a one-day technical seminar and trade show each spring.

Certified Fire Protection Specialist

As a fire protection professional you shoulder tremendous responsibility in curtailing physical and financial loss due to fire. The CFPS credential serves as a distinguished mark of achievement within the field of fire protection. The CFPS examination relies on the comprehensive 2-volume, 200-chapter NFPA Fire Protection Handbook as its body of knowledge. If you are serious about your career in fire protection, you need to be familiar with the Fire Protection Handbook. This primer course will help you become more proficient with the handbook, saving you time while looking up vital information.

A little about NAFED:



The National Association of Fire Equipment Distributors (NAFED) (New Jersey chapter NJAFED) was established in 1963 with the mission of continuously improving the economic environment, business performance, and technical competence in the fire protection industry.

Their founders had certain practical goals in mind. As they managed their businesses and looked for new ways to improve and grow, they noticed that some things were missing: 

  • Where could they learn more about servicing new types of extinguishers?
  • How could individual companies provide input into the structuring of national codes and standards?
  • Where could they buy discounted recharge tags?
  • Who had the answers to technical questions?
  • Who could assist in training new employees?

Today, their association continues to operate with that guiding mission and the principal objective of gathering and disseminating information and ideas that will improve the world's fire protection and increase the fire protection industry's competence.
