Innovations in complex firefighting

The importance of fire-extinguishing foams and the Turin conference

Complex fires and the challenge of extinguishment

Complex fires pose a significant challenge for firefighters and safety officials. Their complexity stems not only from the size or intensity of the flames but also from the variety of materials involved and environmental conditions that can greatly complicate rescue operations. Managing such emergencies requires a coordinated approach and a deep understanding of the most effective techniques and tools to control and extinguish the fire, while simultaneously protecting people, property, and the environment.

Fire-extinguishing foams: a weapon against fire

Fire-extinguishing foams play a fundamental role in the fight against fires, especially when dealing with flammable liquids or large-scale fires. These substances, once mixed with water and aerated through special devices, create a foam capable of smothering the flames by isolating oxygen and, simultaneously, cooling the burning material. Innovation in the sector has led to the development of increasingly effective and eco-friendly foams, reducing the environmental impact of firefighting operations.

The Turin conference: a meeting point for experts

The conference “Managing complex fires and the use of fire-extinguishing foams“, which will be held at the Regional Directorate of the Fire Brigade of Piedmont on February 15, 2024, promises to be a key event for all industry operators. The participation of institutional representatives, industry experts, and personnel from the National Fire Corps highlights the importance of a multidisciplinary approach to emergency management. The conference aims to share knowledge, experiences, and best practices in the use of fire-extinguishing foams, with a keen eye on aspects related to environmental sustainability.

Live streaming and participation

The event will be livestreamed starting from 10:00 AM on February 15, making the content accessible to a broader audience interested in safety and emergency management issues. Registration for the conference is open to all interested parties through the website, while the livestream will be available at This initiative represents a valuable opportunity to stay updated on the latest developments in the field of fire extinguishment and to strengthen the collaboration network among industry professionals.
