FIRESA Council and Chief Fire Officers Association organise Joint Seminar for March 2017

by Brian Sims

The third joint FIRESA Council and Chief Fire Officers Association (CFOA) event will take place on Wednesday 1 March 2017 at the Fire Service College, Moreton-in-Marsh. The event involves an essential one-day seminar and product showcase for UK fire-fighting suppliers, practitioners across the Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) and, indeed, anyone with an interest in the evolution taking place within the FRS.

With radical changes to the FRS gaining ever-growing momentum, the collective mode of operation is becoming very different and much of this will be driven by a proactive and co-operative partnership of the various FRS’ with suppliers to the sector. In particular, the issues of collaborative procurement and a centralised FRS R&D function are advancing at a rapid pace. That being so, both FRS practitioners and suppliers will need an understanding of how these developments will work in practical terms.

In addition, the seminar will also cover Government fire policy, the new CFOA structure and the ‘UK Fire Offer’, an industry-led initiative designed to develop overseas opportunities for UK fire protection and fire-fighting suppliers.

The product showcase will be a mini-exhibition for delegates to look around during the networking breaks and features the latest fire and rescue products.

With all Fire and Rescue Services implementing changes to their delivery models and many participating in a number of collaborative processes both within the sector and across the ‘Blue Light’ services in general, this is badged as being a genuinely unmissable event.

Highly competitive pricing includes one-day conference passes with an option for overnight accommodation and dinner on the night prior to the event. Discounts are available for Fire Industry Association members and FRS staff.
