Eng., FSFPE, will provide a retrospective of his nearly 50-year career in fire protection in Canada and the United States.  Between 1965 and 2015, Jack’s career included 19 years in fire protection contracting in B. C., five years as technical advisor to the fire code committees at IRC in Ottawa, six years as a Senior Research Officer at the National Fire Laboratory in Ottawa, and 19 years in the U.S. as a senior engineer involved in fire testing of suppression systems and forensic analysis as an expert witness.  Mr. Mawhinney will reflect on the people, opportunities and personal decisions involved in the evolution of an interesting career in fire protection engineering.
