2018 Future City Competition

SFPE Chicago Members Marty Pabich and Paul Hart judged this years future city competition at UIC on January 20, 2018. Thank you Marty and Paul for volunteering your time to this excellent event!

The Most Innovative Fire Protection Design award sponsored by the Chicago Chapter of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) was awarded to St. Gilbert School with their city named Techoria.

Marty recounts, “The highlight of the futuristic fire protection was the use of electronic magnetic pulse generation to control fire size to allow for the fire fighters to move/control/suppress/extinguish with wands. The future sure sounds attractive!”
