President Jim Pauley attended Fire Asia 2015 in Hong Kong. For more than 20 years, Fire Asia 2015 has served as a forum for fire safety practitioners, fire engineers, paramedics and emergency services to come together, exchange ideas and discuss industry trends. Approximately 300 fire professionals from 13 countries and regions attended the event, which is organized by the Institution of Fire Engineers (Hong Kong branch); several divisions within the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers; and China’s Hong Kong Fire Protection Association.

Recognizing that today’s prevailing firefighting challenges will require collaboration among multiple disciplines throughout the industry, the theme for Fire Asia 2015 was “Team Up for the Future”. The conference focused on the following issues:

  • firefighting and disaster recovery operation techniques
  • the latest fire engineering research
  • paramedics operations
  • showcase studies for landmark projects

Jim attended the conference with Yuanjing Liu, our representative in China, who played an integral role in connecting Jim with high level delegations and leaders from multiple countries.
