First International Forest Fire Symposium by IVECO MAGIRUS Fire Fighting Academy 2nd - 4th June 2008 in Chambéry/ France

First International Forest Fire Symposium by IVECO MAGIRUS Fire Fighting Academy 2nd - 4th June 2008 in Chambéry/ France

The number and scale of forest fires and extensive blazes have increased dramatically in recent years.  If the forecasts are to be believed this development will continue - not least as a tangible consequence of the worldwide climate change.

The warming of the earth surface and thus also the ever increasing risk of forest fires is a global problem: meanwhile the risk potentials do not lie any longer in extremely dry areas only - such as California, for example - but also in the Southern European states, in Austria, Switzerland or in certain fire risk areas in Northern, Eastern and Southern Germany.

For fire brigades this development poses an enormous challenge: with regard to tactics and organization as well as being equipped with adequate vehicle and fire fighting technology.

The Forest Fire Symposium by IVECO MAGIRUS Fire Fighter Academy therefore will engage in a detailed study of all aspects of this challenge.

By lectures, discussions and training sessions we want to exchange information and experience on the widest possible basis, convey theoretical knowledge and practical skills and establish functioning networks.
