About the trade show
Fire in high-rise buildings is not a regular occurrence, but when it does happen, such as the post-earthquake fires in Japan, or following acts of terrorism such as ‘9/11′ in New York the loss of life is usually heavy. So how can city emergency services improve fire protection and reduce loss of life above the seventh floor of a high-rise or mega building and what is the alternative to classic fire suppression systems?
The only technology that can provide both fire suppression and rescue is airborne - the Helicopter. Recent studies have demonstrated that the helicopter is feasible for firefighting and rescue from high-rise buildings.
In conjunction with Dubai Helishow, and at the request of the Dubai Police Air Wing, Tangent Link is hosting this unique conference for international emergency services, first responders, civil and government helicopter operators, helicopter and firefighting equipment manufacturers to debate this topical issue.
