Gary Dominguez has been recognized by the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) for the 2021 5 Under 35 Award. Recipients are selected based on their contribution back to the fire protection profession and volunteerism in the community.

Gary’s professional fortitude has allowed him to advance his technical knowledge by leading large, complex projects while also maintaining his contributions to industry groups such as SFPE’s Committee on Outreach and Advocacy (appointed to the group in 2017). Gary also has an aptitude for teaching and mentoring, which has enabled him to give back to the FPE community by volunteering as a guest lecturer at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and Santa Ana College.


As a result of his contributions to our industry and Cal Poly, Gary was selected to:

  • Present at Thunderhead Engineering's 3rd Fire and Evacuation Modeling Technical Conference (FEMTC) in Malaga, Spain in 2016
  • Serve as a reviewer for the student symposium at Cal Poly for every graduating class since 2017
  • Represent Cal Poly in SFPE’s Career Supplement Magazine in 2017
