The Public Authority for Civil Defence and Ambulance, Oman (PACDA) in association with Al Nimr International Exhibitions Organizers LLC (Al Nimr Conferences), is organizing the inaugural Civil Defence Symposium & Expo under the theme “Industrial Fire: Prevention & Containment” , coinciding with the International Civil Defence Day.
Safety & Security are the two main factors in promoting economic stability in a country. Under the wise leadership of His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said, Oman is witnessing a glorious era in economic development and industrial growth across major sectors, particularly the oil & gas, construction, manufacturing, free zones, transportation, power and energy. Together with this rapid development, the growing issues with regard to fire safety and increasing number of fire incidents especially in high-risk industries have brought major concerns to the government authorities. It is, therefore, imperative to engage the concerned authorities and the industry in discussing new and innovative strategies and proactive steps to prevent, combat and contain fire hazards that can threaten life and property.
The aim of this three-day conference is to bring together local, regional and international senior officials from the civil defence, industrial emergency response leaders and experts to discuss key issues, share experiences related to industrial fire safety and explore how the latest technologies will help in addressing these challenges. This event also aims to create synergy and strengthen the collaboration between the authorities and industries.
The CDSE-IFPC 2014 programme is designed to equip and update key stakeholders with the latest global standards, procedures and best practices. More than 250 professionals from the GCC member countries and representatives from other regions are expected to attend the conference.
