Event description


IAFPA has issued a call for papers for its Hawaiian Conference 2019. This, the nineteenth annual international conference, is being held on September 5 & 6th at the Alohilani Resort Hotel on Waikiki Beach, Honolulu.

The international event, which will include a variety of world-class presenters, is designed to enhance a greater understanding of fire protection issues surrounding aircraft firefighting and airport facilities. It is also intended to strengthen mutual understanding and co-operation between the many professional disciplines in the emergency response services community - including municipal fire services, police, EMS and other related organisations.

Speakers who wish to present a conference paper must submit a topic abstract no later than June 30, 2019. All abstracts should be limited to one single-sided page, listing the title of the topic, key words and contact name, affiliation, address, telephone and fax numbers, and email address.

All previously unpublished papers aimed at the technical and scientific advancement of ARFF, aviation fire safety, and improved airport fire protection are encouraged for submission.
