The Institute of Fire Prevention Officers (IFPO)

What is the Institute of Fire Prevention Officers?

The Institute of Fire Prevention Officers (IFPO) is a Premier Fire Safety Institute.

The Institute continues to gain in strength not only in the UK but throughout the world. With the availability of almost instant communication the Institute is able to respond quickly to the requirements of the members. This ensures that the universal support and the prompt and professional service provided by the Institute continues to be one of the many benefits of membership. Plus the recent introduction of the Institute's Fire Risk Assessors' Register.

This continuing support and service provided to individual members by the Institute is made much easier by the unwavering assistance given to the Institute from the affiliate member companies. They all continue to devote time and energy to making sure that our questions are answered. It is by increasing our level of knowledge and awareness that we can have a positive effect on fire safety.

One of the aims of the Institute is to enable all members to constantly maintain a professional approach to fire safety. The Institute will use every means at its disposal, including education and advice, to achieve and sustain this aim. It is only by ensuring such an approach that we will provide a significant service to the community in general.
