SimplexGrinnell Receives Lucht Lamp of Knowledge Award


SimplexGrinnell recently received the prestigious 2006 David A. Lucht Lamp of Knowledge Award from the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) of Bethesda, Md. This year’s awards ceremony was held on Oct. 16 in Elliott City, Md.

The Lamp of Knowledge Award, established in 2005, recognizes organizations, companies and individuals that contribute to or provide an opportunity for higher education in fire protection engineering.

“Education is core activity for SFPE, and SimplexGrinnell has an exemplary record of supporting higher education opportunities for fire protection engineers. SimplexGrinnell helps to foster fire protection engineering education and activities of SFPE that help to keep people and property safe from fire,” says David Evans, executive director of SFPE.

The Lamp of Knowledge Award is named after David Lucht, the recently retired founding director of the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) graduate degree program in fire protection engineering.

“SimplexGrinnell exemplifies the ideals of the Lamp of Knowledge, and is certainly a fitting recipient for the 2006 award,” says David Lucht. “It’s important to note that the fire protection engineering program we built at WPI would not have been possible without the relationships that were established with business and industry. All of us involved in fire protection engineering appreciate the exceptional commitment SimplexGrinnell has made to higher education and the industry as a whole.”
