5 April 2012 Alexandria, VA USA— Dubai Air Navigation Services (DANS) has offered their formal endorsement as a Strategic Partner of the 2012 APCO Global Congress in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) 1-3 May, 2012.
The APCO Global Congress is a premier public safety communications event that brings the international public safety community together in the Middle East, showcasing technology and education available in the global arena and recognizing worldwide needs to help improve. DANS, part of the General Civil Aviation Authority, provides safe, expeditious and efficient air navigation services in the UAE and their support reiterates the Congress’s importance in the advancement and collaboration of the public safety industry.
Delegates will learn the latest best practices and research in educational sessions led by international experts including a presentation by DANS on Thursday, May 3 at 09:00.
“The endorsement of DANS exemplifies how the Civil Aviation industry and public safety should and can work together,” says Geoff Spring, APCO Global Alliance Chair. “Emergencies at airports require an emergency response, coordination of all involved parties, and a plan to expedite service. The same is true in the public safety sector. We can learn from and with each other during the Congress.”
APCO Global Congress is hosted on behalf of the APCO Global Alliance, a coalition of APCO International, APCO Canada, British APCO, and APCO Australasia. To date, delegates from Australia, Germany, Nigeria, New Zealand, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and United States will attend the 2012 Congress.
