A+A 2009 focuses on disaster control with a special forum, live presentations
Published on 12 October 2009
A+A 2009 in Düsseldorf, the leading international event for safety, security and health at work, this year for the first time deals with the topic of disaster control.
The programme at the A+A Congress has now been extended to include a day-long "Disaster Control Forum" to be held on 4 November. The talks and discussions here revolve around the general theme "Overcoming Disasters - A Challenge for the Population, the State and the Economy".
The "Disaster Control Forum" will be supplemented by live presentations in the open space in front of Hall 3.
These practical demonstrations will be performed using the relevant equipment (e.g. a fire simulation container) in collaboration with the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (Bundesanstalt Technisches Hilfswerk - THW), the German Works Fire Service Association (Werkfeuerwehrverband - WFV), the German Red Cross, the professional fire brigade of the City of Düsseldorf, the German Federal Police and Drägerwerk AG & Co. KGaA/ Safety Division.
"Disaster control requires comprehensive, coordinated measures of all parties involved, regardless whether it is in overcoming natural disaster, dealing properly with pandemics or resisting criminal or terrorist threats.
The target groups particularly relevant in this area within organisations focused on public safety like the police, the THW, the fire and rescue services and also those responsible in authority all traditionally show great solidarity with the A+A," says Birgit Horn, Project Manager at Messe Düsseldorf, stressing the importance of this topic at the leading international event for specialists in the field of health and safety at work.
