Interschutz 2015 – Profile and Showcase


Fire fighting, disaster relief and rescue: these are the main pillars of INTERSCHUTZ 2015. This flagship fair not only boasts a rich tradition in firefighting, but for many years has also been covering a whole lot more ground.

From 8 to 13 June 2015, the gates will once again be opening on the world’s most renowned exhibition for rescue workers, firefighters and related professionals – an unparalleled showcase of the latest equipment and innovative approaches to emergency rescue. Some 1,300 companies from 46 countries will be presenting their cutting-edge products and services in Hannover, Germany.

As the leading international event for firefighting and disaster relief, INTERSCHUTZ puts the spotlight on the technologies of tomorrow.

Fire Fighting

All methods of firefighting rely on starving the fire of one or more of the three things it needs in order to keep going – heat, oxygen and combustible material. In that sense, nothing has changed since the days of Ancient Egypt. What has changed is that modern firefighters are a lot more systematic in the way the go about their job. They don’t just eliminate the immediate danger; they keep a watchful eye on downstream risk and damage as well. Consequently, modern fire call-outs are a lot less spectacular than in the past. That’s because speed is not the only requirement; getting fires under control also calls for careful consideration – a measured approach that may sometimes appear slower and more deliberate, but which gets the job done more effectively.
Discover for yourself just how effective today’s fire-extinguishing technology can be at INTERSCHUTZ 2015. In halls 13 and 27 and on the open-air site, fire protection specialists from over 40 nations will showcase their innovations and world-firsts in fire protection and firefighting technology.

In the emergency and rescue services, speed is obviously very important, but so too is having properly qualified and equipped personnel. Emergency and rescue professionals work closely with manufacturers of medical equipment and vehicles to continually optimize the care and service provided by first responders. At INTERSCHUTZ 2015, they will showcase their latest results.
