Charles M. Cope, PE, CFPS

Senior Loss Prevention Consultant

Lexington, North Carolina

I graduated from Davidson County Community College in Lexington, NC in 1975 with an AAS in Mechanical Engineering Technology.

I have over 33 years Loss Prevention Industry experience with Industrial Risk Insurers (now XL Global Asset Protection Services), after joining IRI in 1977.

I am a Registered Professional Fire Protection Engineer (PE) in North Carolina and a Certified Fire Protection Specialist (CFPS).

As a Senior Loss Prevention Consultant, I have conducted comprehensive Loss Prevention Surveys in a variety of industries throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico as well as Europe, Asia, and South America. Basically I have traveled worldwide as needed to meet the requests of my customers. Special areas of expertise include Fire Alarm Systems, Textiles, Automotives, Pulp and Paper and Wood Workers. I have provided service for various different industries including operations involving plastics manufacturing, electronics manufacturing, metal workers, aviation, energy, service risks and the rubber industry.

I take pride in developing a relationship with customers so they specifically request my service and look at me as being part of their team to help protect the customer’s assets.

In addition to survey work I have developed project specifications, conducted fire protection plan reviews and conducted field reviews of new fire protection installations including sprinklers systems, fire pumps and fire alarm systems.

I was involved with the development of GAPS Guideline sections and I have conducted customer training seminars as well as public fire department training as requested. I typically teach the Fire Alarm section for the SFPE PE Review course that is taught in cooperation with XL GAPS.

In addition to my knowledge of the NFPA standards, I have also represented XL GAPS on the Committee for Testing and Maintenance of the National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code, NFPA 72.

For 15 years I was the senior professional engineer with GAPS.

I am interested in employment either full or part time. My plan is to be based out of North Carolina and travel as required to the customer locations.
