New aircraft rescue & fire fighting event (ARFF) to debut in Dubai
The International Aviation Fire Protection Association (IAFPA) is launching a new global event for the aviation event calendar and has chosen Dubai as its international venue. The show has the official support of Dubai Airports.
Aircraft Rescue & Fire Fighting 2013 (ARFF) will take place on 10-11 December 2013 in Dubai with an exhibition and a high level conference. Chief Fire Officers and their teams from around the world will converge in Dubai to discover more about the latest technologies for their industry and listen to lessons learnt from different airports’ own experiences.
ARFF 2013 will also showcase the A380 full-scale fire simulator built for Dubai Airports with a live demonstration at Dubai World Central during the pre-conference event on 9 Dec 2013.
Speaking on behalf of IAFPA, Cletus Packiam, IAFPA Chairman & Chief, Airport Emergency Service at Changi Airport said “IAFPA since its formation in 2000 has been alternating its Fire Chiefs meetings and seminars in both Europe and the Asia Pacific. On our entry into the Middle East, IAFPA has chosen Dubai as its international venue to host its first ever ARFF conference. It was chosen for its central hub location, growing aviation industry and investment in new technologies for the aviation fire protection field. IAFPA is equally delighted that Dubai Airports has agreed to support the event and we look forward to a long lasting relationship of hosting ARFF events in Dubai”.
ARFF 2013 is being organized by Tangent Link on behalf of IAFPA.
