Fire Australia 2015 - Delivering a Fire Safe Future: The
right choices for product compliance and approval
Fire safety depends on many factors. Critical to this is
ensuring that fire safety products are designed, installed and
maintained so that they are fit-for-purpose.
It is essential that the right decisions are made from
conception through to completion and that appropriately certified
products are selected and installed to ensure the reliability and
longevity of every system.
Fire Australia 2015 is the premier fire protection industry
conference, attracting a wide range of representation from
businesses, government and fire safety practitioners.
Regular attendees to the conference will notice it has moved
from a November schedule to March. This is to move away from peak
conference season, thus providing more industry personnel the
opportunity to attend.
Building on the success of the last conference and exhibition,
Fire Australia 2015 will once again provide delegates the
of attending multiple streams over the course of both days. The
streams will provide a mix of presentations focussing on
industry wide and industry specific topics. The industry
specific streams will cover early warning and detection, fire
suppression, passive fire protection and egress and bushfire.
Presentations will address current issues, industry direction and
challenges, and technical content relevant to those with an
involvement in the fire protection industry.
The exhibition will once again be a main feature of the event,
located central to all aspects of the conference. Sponsors and
Exhibitors have the opportunity to present on their products and
services within the exhibition hall. These presentations will
occur during breaks in the plenary sessions. With speakers from
across Australia and overseas, the organisers aim to ensure all
presentations are topical and current, affording attendees across
all roles in the fire protection industry additional
knowledge and information.
To ensure fire-safe buildings and infrastructure, a robust fire
safety strategy and reliable fire protection systems and equipment
This requires that decisions on building concept design and the
selection of fire safety equipment and systems are right from
the very first stages of a project. When a system or technology
is poorly designed, incorrectly selected and improperly installed,
commissioned and certified, the impacts of these actions affect the
safety of the building's occupants and the building itself.
There may be major problems during maintenance and an impact
throughout the life cycle of the building or piece of
infrastructure. Potential failure of equipment, construction
elements or systems could occur which may result in loss of lives
and property and significantly increase the legal liability of all
involved in the supply chain from manufacturers through to
The theme of Fire Australia 2015 focusses on getting design
concepts and fire protection systems and equipment right from
the outset, therefore ensuring these are fit for purpose once
installed. This will ensure dependable and cost effective fire
protection throughout the life span of the building or
infrastructure. One of the key aspects of any system is using
the right products for the right circumstances in the right
The conference will highlight issues of product and system
certification, evidence of suitability and the various
methods. It will also look at the technologies we adopt and
adapt to the Australian market, as well as how we compare
with other countries on an international scale for design,
testing and certification.
