Emergency Management Exhibition 2017


On August 23 – 24, 2017, "Foreningen af Kommunale Beredskabschefer" (The association of the Danish municipal fire and rescue services) held their annual meeting in Odense Congress Centre.

As customary, the meeting began with the General Assembly of the Danish Emergency Management Agency where President Jarl V. Hansen gave the Chairman’s Report. Along with the meeting there was an exhibition with 72 exhibitors, making it the largest fire and rescue exhibition in the Nordic Region, where suppliers and manufacturers of firefighting equipment presented and demonstrated the latest news within equipment and vehicles. This year special focus was on the professional contents with scenes in the exhibition halls used for various professional presentations on amongst others operational management, recruitment in a future perspective, climate certification of buildings, as well as a summit with mayors and former ministers as speakers.

AVK Danmark A/S was present with our entire product package within this area. Our Series 84 hydrants ”Nostalgia” and ”Niro” become increasingly popular in Denmark. They are often supplied with backflow protection which is a shut-off device designed to efficiently secure the pipeline network from contamination from the hydrant should backflow occur. Backflow may occur from e.g. suction vehicles or sweepers connecting to the hydrants. These types are amongst others also characterized by having traffic safety preventing total damage of the hydrant in case of a collision.

The exhibition was very well visited with great interest in and many questions to our products. Hence, we hope that the AVK hydrants will still adorn the Danish landscape in the future. Great thanks from AVK Danmark A/S to all, who made our participation in the Emergency Management Exhibition 2017 possible.
