Fire & Safety Expo Korea 2017

FirePro Korea, a subsidiary of FirePro Systems, the leader in condensed aerosol technology, participated in the 14th International Fire & Safety Expo, hosted in Daegu, South Korea.

Held between April 26th and 28th at the EXCO Exhibition Hall, the Expo attracts more than 250 companies and 1000 stands. A range of professionals participate in this event, including governmental organizations, fire equipment manufacturers, safety managers, architects, and engineers. The Expo also offers an opportunity for visitors to hold one-to-one business meetings with industry experts, and attend professional seminars held by the Ministry of Public Safety and Security and the Korean Fire Institute of Industry and Technology.

This year’s Expo centered on the recent 5.8 magnitude earthquake which struck the Korean city of Gyeongju, North Gyeongsang Province, and the importance of earthquake proof firefighting systems in regions where earthquakes can be a common occurrence. The FirePro Korea team was on hand to demonstrate the range of FirePro products and solutions, all of which have been assessed and approved as per seismic test requirements.

FirePro’s Executive Director, Dr. Gian Guido Gianfilippi De Parenti was invited by the Korean Fire Institute (KFI) to present a lecture entitled ‘Condensed Aerosol Technology as an Earthquake Resilient Fire Fighting System,’ at one of the Expo’s professional seminars. Dr. De Parenti was one of three special international guests, speaking to an audience of fire engineers.

The Korea Fire & Safety Expo was a great success, and FirePro wishes to express its gratitude to our Korean partner, Mr. Jeong-Seob Park and his team for their significant efforts to ensure a productive and constructive presence for FirePro at the Expo.
