2021 is finally behind us and we here at MDM Publishing have been bowled over by the positivity in the industry about 2022. Actual real-life Conferences and Exhibitions look to finally be on the cards again for 2022 which can only be a good thing and we look forward to meeting our readers and customers throughout the year at various events.

In our January 2022 issue, we take a look at the first big international show of the year, Intersec 2022 in Dubai. A truly international show which is full of the latest technologies in the market, many informative conferences and a show which is certainly worth a visit. We also take a look at Fire and Emergency New Zealand – a young organisation with a 150-year history.

Other interesting articles include A Tale of five Presidents: what the past can tell us about the future of fire protectionAfter almost a decade of service, AFAC welcomes new CEOSafely tackling electric vehicle and internal combustion engine fires and The future of fighting wildfires is drones.

Other informative articles include Standards Australia supports quality infrastructure in the Pacific; Climate change and wildfire: a call to arms; Is your life-safety equipment ‘fit for purpose?’; Indigenous communities leading the way with natural hazards training and much, much more.

We sincerely hope you enjoy reading this issue of Asia Pacific Fire Magazine. If you have any comments or questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
