Fire Asia 2018

Introduction

This era has seen the emergence of skyscrapers and intricately designed buildings that have posed great challenges to firefighting and rescue operations not only in Asia, but worldwide. Added to these are the threats brought by epidemics, natural disasters or other unprecedented emergencies. Fire engineering designs, ambulance services and disaster relief work have to be constantly updated to stay abreast of modern developments and meet the multifaceted challenges of safety management. To build a safe city is a formidable task. All parties involved must forge closer cooperation and seek views from fire and ambulance professionals and other emergency responders from time to time, while maintaining a high standard of professionalism in safety management and large-scale disaster management. It is our mission to do our utmost to serve the general public and protect their lives and properties.
