Fighting Back! 'Practical examples of how some fire and rescue services are reducing their carbon footprint'

Published on 28 January 2009

Plans for the climate change event 'Fighting Back!' to be held in City of Manchester Stadium on February 10th are well underway and bookings are coming in steadily. This is the first climate change event to be held jointly by the Chief Fire Officers' Associations' (CFOA) and our partners for the event, the Institution of Fire Engineers.

Barry Dixon, CFOA director with responsibility for environmental issues said, "Delegates to this conference will get an overview of current climate change challenges facing the fire and rescue service and they will also hear examples of good practice from fire and rescue services already making inroads into sustainability, reducing their carbon emissions and already delivering a 'greener' service.

"Managing our carbon footprint is a relatively new priority within the fire service and by sharing
practical examples of what we know already works on the ground fire and rescue services have the opportunity to springboard projects to show positive results within a very short period."

This seminar will also be of interest to organisations looking for a way into a nationwide network of fire and rescue service organisations, to quickly understand the sector and gain appreciation of the substantial opportunities for business development in environment management.

'Fighting back' is one of a series of CFOA Innovations Events focusing on improving performance over a range of important issues relating to the fire and rescue service.

Attendance at 'Fighting back' will provide 4.5 hours of CPD credits certified by the Institution of Fire Engineers.
