Programme Highlights

Tunnels by nature have limited accessibility for fire fighting and rescue.  Fire risk in tunnels is a result of the working of a system involving design provision, operation, emergency response and tunnel use, i.e. a systemic product.  Where tunnels are becoming ever larger, longer and more complex, the systemic product needs to be able to deal with this.  The Seminar will give an insight of fire fighting strategies of tunnels of different types, road and rail.
