Fire Safety System Engineer

Job Description

Work with the engineering design group to ensure the combustible materials being specified in the vehicle meet the compliance requirements of the CFR and/or NFPA as appropriate.
Review and analyze material data sheets and test reports to ensure the fire performance data of the materials do not exceed the limits set by the CFR or NFPA and ensure the report dates are within the required limits of the vehicle technical specification.
Maintain and update the technical data sheets and test reports of the combustible materials used on the vehicles.
Demonstrate vehicle fire safety compliance by compiling and maintaining a spreadsheet for each vehicle contract (SFT Matrix), which lists:
Material Location on vehicle
Weights of each material
Flame Spread data
Smoke generation data
Heat content
Laboratory test results, report numbers and test dates

Produce a report to accompany the spreadsheet containing any required fire safety analyses or waivers that may be required for certain cases where non-compliant materials are used and attach copies of test reports for all combustible materials used in the vehicle as listed in the matrix.
HRA contracts also require the creation of a separate Fire Safety Analysis, which considers design, material compliances, safety features, evacuation provisions and compliance with 49 CFR 238.

Bachelor’s degree in Engineering or Science with 2 years of rail vehicle design experience or experience in fire dynamics.
