On 19-21 June 2018, Parkan Behayeddin (Director, SFS – Scientific Fire Services) attended the 5th International Tall Building Fire Safety Conference in London, UK. The conference was held 12 months following the tragedy at Grenfell Tower along with several other similar fires in tall buildings around the world. The conference was attended by delegates from all corners of the globe with the view of information sharing and discussing key modern day fire safety matters with respect to fire engineering, fire testing and analysis, fire risk management, insurance, fire risk assessment methods and risk mitigation with respect to fires during construction. Operational firefighting in tall buildings was also a main focus throughout the conference with many fire authority speakers discussing the changes to response and strategy with the increased risks of fire spread via external walls. The 5th International Tall Building Fire Safety Conference took place alongside the FIREX International Exhibition with endless displays of the latest fire protection equipment, products and services.
