3rd International Fire Protection & Rescue Exhibition KIELCE IFRE-EXPO
About the event
The International Fire Protection & Rescue Exhibition KIELCE IFRE-EXPO 2019 brought together almost 7500 business-inside visitors.
The consecutive firefighting festival is held in two years’ time - the exhibition switching its schedule. From now on it will be held every-other-year cycle.
High exhibitors attendance, prestigious offers on show - this is the feedback after the show. Compared to the previous IFRE-EXPO, 2019’s exhibition has advanced - it used over 5,000 sq m of the exhibition space. The trade show has become more international - 127 companies represented as many as 8 countries. The specialist vehicles on show attracted the greatest attention and appreciation of the visitors. Rosenbauer's auto shows kept the audience et the edge of their seats - this sizzling-hot atmosphere was able to beat the African temperatures during the exhibition. The FIRE-MAX self-propelled AIRCORE TAF35 gas turbines manufactured by Magirus stimulated the audience and gained an avid interest - not only was the vehicle on display at the company's expo stand but also in action at the in-field real life demonstrations.
Targi Kielce featured little fire-fighters from Stąporkow - young firefighters’ shows have marked the expo’s tradition. An injured teddy bear rescued from a wreck, evacuation of Koziołek Matołek [Billy the Goat] from a burning house enjoyed a great interest among the expo visitors. The shows stimulated Polish Television Channel One - the reportage on little fire services hit the news - TVP viewers had the chance to see the coverage on Telexpres. The skills of, inter alia: Kokos and Dante, the rescue dogs from the Nowy Sącz OSP were also proudly presented. A 10-month-old Czort, the youngest Nowy Sącz, four-legged officer also presented its skills for the first time in "extreme" conditions. There was an important point on the agenda - all firefighters had the chance to take part in a drill. And indoor fire simulator was made available by OLC Fire.
The 18 units of the Volunteer Fire Brigades fought for the laurels at the KIELCE IFRE-EXPO 2019 competition. The team of OSP Włoszczowa was the first, OSP Błogoszów were the runner-ups, and OSP Wola Kopcowa came third. The firefighters had to roll a tyre, unroll the W-52 fire hose and filling the tank with a hand-pump extinguisher.
