On 15-16 June, we had the pleasure of participating in the 4th IFRE-EXPO International Trade Fair for Fire Service Equipment and Supplies in Kielce. The atmosphere at this event was amazing and the number of participants, which reached around 7,500, confirmed the huge interest in the fire service and rescue services industry.
The opening ceremony of the fair was attended by the command staff of the State Fire Service. Brig. Gen. Andrzej Bartkowiak, Commander-in-Chief of the State Fire Service, had the honour of conducting the inauguration ceremony. In his speech, he emphasised the importance of such events in the context of the continuous modernisation of the fire service. This declaration sends an important signal to the entire industry that development and innovation are key elements of effective fire protection.
During the trade fair, a briefing was held for Fire Service executives, during which the current tasks and challenges facing the fire service in the near future were discussed.
On the second day of the trade fair, several hundred people had the opportunity to take part in a conference organised by the National Headquarters of the State Fire Service. Three panel discussions addressed key topics such as medical rescue operations in the National Rescue and Firefighting System, the development of communications for effective alerting and warning of the public and legislative challenges related to the Fire Protection Act in the context of prevention.
The meetings and discussions with delegations of firefighters from the Fire Service and TSOs from different countries were extremely inspiring. The exchange of experience and knowledge has opened up new opportunities to make valuable contacts and work together to improve the safety of our communities.
We are already looking forward to the next edition of IFRE-EXPO. We are energised and ready to continue our mission to help emergency services improve the safety and efficiency of their operations. The IFRE-EXPO fair has given us new insights into our capabilities and the needs of the market, which will enable us to better meet the expectations of our customers.
Stay tuned to witness our upcoming initiatives and events.
