The Institution of Fire Engineers (IFE) is a global professional membership body for those in the fire sector that seek to increase their knowledge, professional recognition and understanding of fire through a global discourse. IFE is at the heart of the international fire and emergency community, promoting best practice and advancing the discipline for the benefit of society and supporting the professional development of members.

The IFE serves as the ‘nexus between the fire engineering industry and the fire services’, assisting in the advocacy for adequate regulation and facilitating collaboration between the sectors.

It provides professional recognition for fire engineers across a broad spectrum and has achieved recognition by the Engineering Council to assess and nominate qualified fire engineers for registration as professional engineers.

The IFE also aims to encourage and improve the science and practice of Fire Extinction, Fire Prevention and Fire Engineering and expedients connected to these goals. Through these networks it aims to give an impulse to ideas likely to be useful in connection with or in relation to such science and practice to the members of the Institution and to the community at large.
