The Malaysia Fire and Rescue Department along with the IFE Malaysia branch and the Malaysian Fire Protection Assoc. hosted an exceptional international conference and exhibition last week in Kuala Lumpur. Speakers from Asia, Europe and the USA presented papers on topic interoperability, management, resilience, high-rise and many more topics.
The themes for the conference:-
- Operational challenges for firefighters
- New frontiers for fire safety engineering
- Impact of sustainable built-environment on fire safety
The exhibition showcased 146 different products from around the region and beyond. Innovation was the theme for the exhibition and we were not disappointed, new alarm systems, suppression techniques and rescue equipment were only some of the products.
The Confederation of Fire Protection Associations International and Asia held a successful meeting during the conference consolidating the tie in with fire protection and fire suppression.
We would like to thank the organising committee chaired by Director General Datuk Wira Hj. Wan Mohd bin Hj. Ibrahim for a great event.
I would also like to thank Steven Ooi Chairman CFPA for hosting Asia Pacific Fire (APF) Magazine during the conference.
