Leading fire industry associations including the Institution of Fire Engineers, the Rail Industry Fire Association, the Association for Specialist Fire Protection, the Institute of Fire Safety Managers, the Association of Insurance Surveyors and the National Association of Healthcare Fire Officers have all confirmed their support for The Fire Safety Event 2018.
Taking place from 10-12 April at the NEC in Birmingham and co-located with The Health & Safety Event and The Facilities Event, The Fire Safety Event promises to bring together thousands of like-minded professionals in the fire, safety, facilities and security sectors.
The leading fire associations will be in attendance over the three days of the event, with many having stands and speaking as part of the Continuing Professional Development (CPD)-accredited seminar programme. They join the British Safety Council and the British Safety Industry Federation in supporting the Western Business Exhibitions-run series of events in April.
Visitors attending the event will be treated to more than 20 hours of free CPD-accredited content being delivered across two theatres – The Fire Safety Keynote Theatre (sponsored by Advanced) and the Fire and Evacuation Theatre. Sessions include mock trials on the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and corporate manslaughter, evacuating during terrorist attacks, lessons learned from the Grenfell Tower blaze and how to conduct a suitable fire risk assessment.
Tim Else, event director for The Fire Safety Event, explained: “We’re thrilled to have the leading associations in the fire sector supporting The Fire Safety Event and very much look forward to welcoming their members to the NEC in April. In 2017, we attracted more than 5,000 delegates across the three days of the show, all of whom were treated to an unparalleled seminar programme.”
Else added: “This year’s event will be bigger and better with an unparalleled line-up of high-profile speakers addressing the key issues facing the sector such as legal responsibilities, tall buildings fire safety and evacuations, ensuring the competency of risk assessors and how to protect vulnerable people. We will also have more than 40 of the leading manufacturers and Trade Associations in the sector exhibiting, so make sure you put 10-12 April in your diary and join us at the NEC in Birmingham for The Fire Safety Event.”
