Blog Post created by Michael Hazell Employee on Oct 3, 2013

As the Foundation's symposium on The Next Five Years in Fire and Electrical Safety approaches on November 13,14 in Washington, DC, I'd like to preview some of the insights of our presenters - this time from the session on the Changing Urban Landscape.  

Antony Wood, Executive Director of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, will provide his global vision on the changing nature of our cities - from the Super Tall building phenomenon to the emerging range of building types and uses. 

Dan O'Connor, Chief Technical Officer for Aon Fire Protection Engineering, will share his views on the implications of these changes on building fire safety and the pace of innovation in fire safety design.

Carl Wren, Chief Engineer, Austin Fire Department, will explain how his department is adapting to this new environment.

Adam Thiel, Chief, City of Alexandria Fire Department, will discuss emerging fire fighting tactics and other concerns of the emergency response community.
