Fire Australia


Thank you!


To all those who attended or participated in Fire Australia, 2013 FPA Australia and the conference organising committee wish to say thank you for making it a fantastic success. Both streams of presentations were well attended throughout both days and the exhibition received hundreds of additional attendees. The dinner function was thoroughly enjoyed by all guests, with approximately $8,000 being raised for the Burns Unit at the Children's Hospital at Westmead.


Presentation Recordings


If you missed a presentation stream, a day or the entire conference you can purchase video recordings of all conference content. There is even a discount available to those that attended the conference as a delegate. For more information and to place an order, download the order form.




After two days of two streams, 36 presentations and one discussion forum, four resolutions were formulated:


  1. The need for a nationally consistent, rigorous and fair accreditation system for the fire protection industry.
  2. The need for increased harmonization across all facets of the industry through consistent regulatory frameworks, standards and work practices.
  3. The need for continual education and training within the fire protection industry including ongoing up-skilling and re-skilling of the entire workforce.
  4. The need for a shared vision and holistic pathway for national micro-economic reform to improve construction industry productivity through truly performance based regulation, engineering and education of professionals.


Recognition of Support


Fire Australia is a huge undertaking and wouldn't be possible without the support of many individuals, groups and organisations. First is the organising committee which develops and directs the theme, presentations and format of the conference. Next is the time and effort put in by all the speakers to create a comprehensive and engaging program.


The financial support of all sponsors makes it possible to hold the event in a world class conference venue and provide attendees with a better experience all round. Special mention goes to the 2013 Platinum Sponsor, FlameStop.


Those companies and organisations that exhibit provide greater incentive for industry personnel to visit and it was fantastic to see an amazing array of custom built stands this year.  Finally, the dedicated team of FPA Australia staff who assist during the conference should also be recognised for their hard work.
