The exam covers Fire Protection Analysis, Fire Protection Management, Fire Dynamics, Active and Passive Systems, and Egress and Occupant Movement. In addition to the FPE, Emily has a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Maine, a Professional Engineers (PE) License, and is a LEED Accredited Professional.
Ms. Pinyard’s capabilities include the design of fire protection; HVAC, power generation, and process piping systems; feasibility studies; and construction monitoring. She is well versed in the design and code requirements of fire protection and has worked closely with the State Fire Marshall’s office to ensure that proper egress, detection, and the impact of the designs are understood. She has experience designing fire detection and alarm systems; and fire suppression systems such as wet pipe sprinklers, dry pipe sprinklers, and foam systems. Emily has taken fire protection courses through the Graduate Fire Protection Engineering program at the University of Maryland and focused on fire suppression and detection courses. Emily is experienced with new building design, renovations, retrofits, energy saving projects and planning and feasibility studies.
