The Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE) is a truly global organisation connecting fire professionals and sharing expertise since 1918. The IFE is guided in all that it does by the objectives contained within the Strategic Plan 2015-2018. This document highlights the strategic priorities for the period 2015-2018.
Our members share a commitment to envisioning, preparing, mentoring and building for the future, ensuring that the fire profession remains relevant and valued, protecting people, property and the environment from fire.
IFE members, representing the whole spectrum of the fire sector, as well as giving to the Institution, benefit greatly from opportunities to meet, exchange views and develop professional networks and friendships on a global scale.
The IFE is a professional engineering institution (PEI) and assesses suitably qualified and experienced members for registration as Chartered Engineers, Incorporated Engineers and Engineering Technicians. It also operates a UK based Fire Risk Register for Assessors and Auditors as well as offering examinations proving competence.
The IFE is neither a political organisation nor a trade union, it remains neutral from these areas, focussing on what Science in all its disciplines can provide and do for fire engineering. It is a member led organisation.
