AFAC17 powered by INTERSCHUTZ has come and gone. By many accounts, it was a tremendous success. Please see the review of the conference and exhibition on pages 16 and 17 so please take a look if you attended or are planning to attend next years event in Perth, Australia.

Also featured in this exciting issue we look at making firefighting and fire protection work together. An article which we hope will draw a lot of interest from the fire protection and fire fighting communities alike. We also look at the Earthquake SAR operation in Mount Kinabalu, Ranau, Sabah, Malaysia. Why Flood/water restoration is part of community recovery and also Construction in bushfire prone areas.
Other informative articles include machine learning model of tropical cyclone wind risk, mountain waves and extreme fire behaviour, is your fire service prepared? Firefighter cardiac arrest – Part 1 and much, much more.
We sincerely hope you enjoy reading this issue of APF Magazine.If you have any comments or questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
