Partner Country Poland Day – 12 June: Germany’s eastern neighbor rapidly building a successful civil rescue industry

Across the border in Poland, the positive effects of the country’s infrastructure policy are reflected not least in the area of civil safety. Poland now has a modern rescue service, for example, and – just like Germany – a volunteer fire service. These have led to the growth in recent years of a strong civil rescue industry. Polish companies have signed up in record numbers for INTERSCHUTZ 2015, and will be showing visitors what they can do on a total display area of more than 1,500 square meters. At the Partner Country Poland Day on 12 June, the growing importance of the Polish market will be highlighted in numerous special events and promotions.

A press conference and several seminars will explore various aspects of the Polish market today. These presentations enjoy the official support of the Polish industry association EDURA (The Rescue Education and Technique Foundation). In partnership with Deutsche Messe, EDURA also stages the trade show “EDURA powered by INTERSCHUTZ” in Kielce, and the association will have its own stand at INTERSCHUTZ in Hannover, where firms planning to enter the Polish market can get further information about exhibiting at the upcoming EDURA in Kielce.
