Chief Fire Officers Conference 2012

At the beginning of May (9th and 10th) Anthony and Declan took to the road again, this time heading for the Ballymascanlon House Hotel in Dundalk where this year’s Chief Fire Officer’s conference was taking place.

The theme was ‘New Horizons for the Fire and Rescue Service of the Future’. This was the perfect theme for showcasing our state of the art range of fire service products including Diamond Fire Engine; Diamond Fire, and Diamond EAC, as well as our hardware products.

An impressive array of local, national and international speakers was lined up to talk at the event (including Olli-Pekka Ojanen, CEO of Regional Emergency Services, Tampere, Finland and Dr. Guillermo Rein, University of Edinburgh), with the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government Phil Hogan TD opening the conference.

Anthony Quinn said, ‘As usual this year’s Chief Fire Officer’s Conference was great! Getting to the conference every year enables us to catch up with the customers face to face and tell them about the updates and improvements to our products. We also get to play around with the hardware we resell (such as the Panasonic Toughbook) and show them off to potential customers. All in all it was a really worthwhile couple of days, and getting to spend them with Declan was just the cherry on the cake!’
