Wildfire Suppression Pty Ltd, an Australian based company that developed the Fire Suppression Munition technology known as FSM, will be exhibiting at the Aerial Firefighting Event to be held at the Sheraton Crystal City Hotel in Washington DC on the 23rd and 24th of March 2011.
This highly successful event for the Aerial Firefighting community is travelling to the USA at the end of March and will be the seventh in the series. The event will review the current trends in controlling wild land fires from the air and how this is likely to influence the future make-up of the next generation of aerial fire fighting assets and funding that will be required.
There has been a considerable increase in the size and frequency of wild land fires in the past decade resulting in many acres burned, large numbers of homes lost and other critical structures destroyed. At least seven US states have recently had the worst wildfires in their history. The Station Fire Enquiry has further intensified the debate on how should the US better prepare itself to tackle ‘Mega’ fires.
This Aerial Firefighting event will address the current challenges the US faces in dealing with the increasing problem of combating these fires and debate how we define and execute the correct path in going forward.
Mr. Marc Hartmann, Director of Wildfire Suppression and Co-founder of the FSM technology, said “We are delighted to be attending this prestigious event. It is an ideal forum in which to introduce our technology to government officials, aerial firefighting agencies and leading suppliers of aerial firefighting products and services from the US and around the world. This will be against a backdrop of calls to identify new fire suppression technologies that bring greater cost effectiveness to aerial fire suppression activities.”
You’ll find Wildfire Suppression exhibiting in Ballroom A, Booth 8, at the Sheraton Crystal City Hotel.
