Even the Ancient Egyptians must have known enough about the fire-retardant properties of sand to use include it alongside water in their firefighting arsenal. Of course, things have come a long way over the intervening four millennia. The very latest fire protection equipment and systems will be on show in halls 13 and 27 and on the open-air site at INTERSCHUTZ 2015.
All methods of firefighting rely on starving the fire of one or more of the three things it needs in order to keep going – heat, oxygen and combustible material. In that sense, nothing has changed since the days of Ancient Egypt. What has changed is that modern firefighters are a lot more systematic in the way the go about their job. They don’t just eliminate the immediate danger; they keep a watchful eye on downstream risk and damage as well. Consequently, modern fire call-outs are a lot less spectacular than in the past. That’s because speed is not the only requirement; getting fires under control also calls for careful consideration – a measured approach that may sometimes appear slower and more deliberate, but which gets the job done more effectively.
Discover for yourself just how effective today’s fire-extinguishing technology can be at INTERSCHUTZ 2015. In halls 13 and 27 and on the open-air site, fire protection specialists from over 40 nations will showcase their innovations and world-firsts in fire protection and firefighting technology.
