The Texas Fire Protection Association is a chapter of the International Code Council, serving hundreds of members including fire marshals, building officials, inspectors, engineers, architects, fire sprinkler and alarm contractors, and others who work in the building and fire safety profession. TFPA formed in 2018 after originally operating as a chapter of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers since 2000. TFPA continues to work cooperatively with SFPE's Central Texas Networking Chapter, also formed in 2018, to jointly support the building and fire safety community in Central Texas and around the state.
TFPA holds lunch meetings every other month, which include professional development seminars instructed by recognized experts on fire protection and building safety topics. Special events are sometimes offered in intervening months between regular meetings. TFPA is an ICC Preferred Education Provider, and meeting attendees receive CEUs that count towards ICC certification renewals.
Anyone interested in fire/building safety is welcome to join.
