“I enjoy the challenge and ability to contribute to the less-apparent, safety-related aspects of building design, and the challenge of finding creative solutions to complex compliance issues. At the end of the day, it might be the least-apparent features of the building that make the most difference."
"I was a fire fighter and architecture student. When I learned that a specialized field existed that would allow me to apply science to building design, I knew I had found my calling. The ability to affect building design before a fire ever starts is much more attractive than waiting until there is an emergency.
By helping to design new buildings, renovate and retrofit older buildings, I can leave a lasting legacy of safety and help my industry improve its product. I can help save the lives of the future occupants and first-responders while I promote clarity in design and compliance."

Dan Goldberg, PE, Director of Professional Development
“I knew from a young age that I was very passionate about two things; helping people and applying science. Fire protection engineering exists at a natural junction between the two, and enables me to spend my time and attention doing what I love. I know I will be able to look back on my career satisfied that my work contributed to the greater good."
