Chicago SFPE, on behalf of Siemens, donates fire alarm equipment to CFD

The Chicago Chapter of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) is happy to work with the Chicago Fire Department (CFD) and be in a position to donate a new, state of the art, fire alarm panel to the Robert J. Quinn Fire Academy. The CFD is one of the oldest, most innovative, and storied fire departments in the country. Similarly, the Chicago Chapter of SFPE is the oldest chapter of SFPE and tirelessly works to promote fire safety on the local level through our dedicated membership. It is that membership and Siemens’ Fire & Life Safety Service that enabled this donation of a Siemens FireFinder XLS alarm panel. This fully functional Siemens panel with devices and appliances will be used to train the new recruits of the Chicago Fire Department. The CFD along with providing emergency care and extinguishing fires, works to promote fire safety. Similarly, part of SFPE’s mission is to advance the use of engineering, and educate the global fire safety community, in order to reduce fire risk. Through these parallel organizational goals, SFPE is honored to be able to make this donation and with it, hope that our organizations can continue to work together on our shared objectives. It is with great gratitude to those brave and dedicated members of the CFD, that the Chicago Chapter of SFPE and Siemens make this fire alarm panel donation to the Chicago Fire Department.
