The Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council (AFAC) is hosting a seminar on the challenges of a multi-storey high rise residential fire. During this seminar Chief Officer David Youssef of the Metropolitan Fire and Emergency Services Board, Victoria (MFB) will explore the challenges of a multi-storey high rise residential fire based on learnings from a structure fire that occurred in Docklands, VIC.

The seminar is aimed at operational personnel who may be involved in the command and control of similar incidents within their jurisdiction. Agency representatives with a vested interest in the built environment and standards would similarly find the session highly relevant. Participants from the planning and building sector, local government and recovery agencies are encouraged to attend. A cost of $110 applies to non-AFAC members. 

Date: Tuesday, 9 June 2015 10.00am to 3.00pm
Venue: Technology Park, Bentley
