IFE celebrates contributions of its 400 volunteers

The Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE), marks the 39th year of Volunteers’ Week (1-7 June) by recognising and celebrating its volunteering cohort in shaping a world safer from fire

Throughout the week, the IFE will release interviews with volunteers from across the globe, providing insight into the incredible work they do each day in driving advances across the fire sector.

At a team of over 400, IFE volunteers are a vital resource and support the institution in every aspect of running the charity, from developing CPD and evolving best practices and research, to expanding the ability to carry out examinations.

Over the last 12 months, the Membership Application Assessment Panel and IFE Registrants Group have processed over 1,150 membership and registration applications, while its exam volunteers have written 55 examinations.

The IFE continues to explore specialist subject areas within fire engineering through its group of 10 Special Interest Groups (SIGs). These include electric vehicles and emerging technologies to fire safety within heritage sites, often influencing government legislation in the process.

Commenting on Volunteers’ Week, IFE CEO, Steve Hamm, said: “For over 100 years, the IFE has benefited from the incredible knowledge of its volunteering cohort. As a professional body, we’re bonded by the mission of advancing fire safety and making the world a safer place.

“Every day I’m amazed at the varied skill set and enthusiasm of our volunteers. From marking exams to chairing a special interest group, they’re a truly invaluable resource and a vital component in developing the formal recognition of professional standards globally. Thank you on behalf of the IFE.”
