AFAC – Fire & Emergency Management Conference 2016

WATERAX will be in Australia at the end of August to attend AFAC – Fire & Emergency Management Conference 2016. Come and see us at stand 19 where the renowned MARK-3® portable fire pump, the MINI-STRIKER® lightweight fire pump and the RANCHER® lightweight skid unit will be featured.

The Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council (AFAC) and Hannover Fairs Australia, are delighted to announce a new partnership. Combining the strengths of both organisations the partnership will deliver AFAC16 under a renewed focus to embrace and support all fire and emergency agencies to achieve their goals and preserve public safety.

AFAC16 powered by INTERSCHUTZ Exhibition will attract and showcase the latest developments in emergency services equipment and technology from around the globe to the Australasian region.


Under the conference theme Mitigation – Response – Recovery: Getting the balance right, the conference will be co-produced with the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC.

Emergency and disaster management has advanced dramatically over the past five years with fire and emergency service agencies worldwide implementing new and innovative ways to mitigate and respond to disasters.

Recent worldwide catastrophic events have identified the need for better recovery capability. AFAC16 will explore how agencies are getting the balance right, within new, diverse, inclusive multi agency disaster management services.

Held over four action packed days at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, AFAC16 powered by INTERSCHUTZ will attract delegates and visitors from emergency and security services agencies, all levels of government, non-government organisations, research and education institutions from Australia and world-wide.

The conference is comprised of the Research Forum on Tuesday 30 August 2016, an immersive trade exhibition and multi-streamed two day conference on Wednesday 31 August and Thursday 1 September 2016. There will be post conference development sessions on the last day of the event, Friday 2 September 2016.
