Happy New Year to you all!!!
This issue of Asia Pacific Fire starts the year with our brand new cover design. We hope you like the new design. This issue is full of interesting and informative articles. We take a look at the new Victorian Emergency Management Training Centre (VEMTC) at Craigieburn. Trent Curtin, Director of Operational Training, gives us a full insight into the workings of the centre where firefighters can train across a wide range of firefighting scenarios in their state-of-the-art facility.
Other interesting articles we have in this issue include New technology is helping defeat false fire alarms; Death prevention by virtual training; Crisis Management and a special report looking at a new partnership between ACT Emergency Services Agency and the Vanuatu Fire Service.
Other informative articles include Wildfire investigation, developments in single use hazmat suits; what’s new in the world of standards and much, much more.
