Fires in Vehicles, FIVE, is a new international conference covering many aspects of fire safety in vehicles used for transportation of people and goods. The event was created by SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden, Department of Fire Technology in response to a call for dialogue on this important issue from industry and other stakeholders.

 

FIVE 2010 was held in Gothenburg in Sweden on September 29-30, 2010. With over 200 delegates this event clearly proves the pressing need for an international dialogue in this area.
