The event was held at the Ritz-Carlton, Bahrain between 10 - 12 April and was attended by more than 300 people attended, including firefighters, fire officers, and fire chiefs from across the Middle East and outside.

“Saudi Aramco proved that it is the world leader not just in energy production, but also in the furthering and exploration of excellence in all fields by providing a forum to delve deep into the pressing questions faced by the global fire service,” said Thomas Jenkins, president of the IAFC.

“This was truly a historic gathering of experts in fire operations and fire service leaders. We are very proud to offer these educational opportunities in collaboration with Saudi Aramco as part of the first conference dedicated to fire operations ever held in the Middle East,” Jenkins added.

“We are very proud of our collaborative efforts with IAFC to launch the First International Fire Operations Conference in the region — a truly momentous initiative. This platform will allow our fire leaders to learn from past experiences, contemplate game-changing concepts in the field of fire protection, and move forward in shaping the future,” Ghassan G. Abulfaraj, manager, Saudi Aramco Fire Protection Department, said.
