“Facing the Challenges of Fire Protection Engineering” will be the theme of the 10th International Congress on Fire Safety Engineering organised by APICI, with the collaboration of the Comillas Pontifical University-ICAI and the Mapfre Foundation, which will be held in Madrid from 25th to 27th September. The sessions will feature presentations and analysis of the most current issues in the field of fire protection.
Following the success of the 9th International Congress on Fire Safety Engineering, organized by APICI in Madrid in October 2017, with the attendance of more than 200 professionals, international experts and companies from the sector in Spain, the country’s leading event in the field of Fire Protection Engineering is being held once again. On this occasion, the congress will be co-located, with sessions beginning on 25th September 2019 at the Mapfre Foundation and continuing at the Comillas Pontifical University-ICAI on 26th and 27th.
The sessions will feature presentations and analysis of the most current issues in the field of fire protection. Some of the main sessions include the campaigns by MAPFRE Foundation and APTB (Objective Zero Victims in Fires), lessons learned from major fires in homes and historic heritage sites, with firefighters’ insights (with the participation of firefighters from Paris, London and Quito), and insights from government about the situation of fire safety in Spain.
Other sessions will address the challenges of fire safety in buildings, innovation and R&D&I in fire protection engineering, fire forensic analysis and investigation, fire safety in the logistics sector and industry, lessons learned in fighting forest fires, qualifications, competences and training for fire protection engineers, and fire protection in transport infrastructure.
