21/03/2014 - DFES Conference 2014

 

2014 WA FIRE AND EMERGENCY SERVICES CONFERENCE
I am pleased to announce that the fourth annual WA Fire and Emergency Services Conference will be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 October 2014.

The conference is a unique opportunity for volunteer delegates from all over the State to learn, interact and network with their fellow fire and emergency services personnel.  Planning for the conference is now underway and will involve all Volunteer Associations, as well as feedback from 2013 conference delegates.
The program is being developed to provide delegates with an opportunity to participate in a range of professional development workshops, presentations and practical demonstrations.

A range of emergency services appliances and exhibition booths will also be on display at the conference.

Volunteers from across the DFES services, Association representatives and DFES personnel will be in attendance. Last year more than 550 personnel attended over the two days.  Details of the program and registration process will be released in coming months.  Ideas for conference sessions, workshops, practical demonstrations and exhibitions can be contributed by contacting the DFES Media and Public Affairs on 9395 9894 or via email conference@dfes.wa.gov.au.
