About the SureFire Workshop

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University will host the 2nd International Smart Firefighting Workshop (SureFire 2024) on 9 July 2024 (Tuesday), following the 1st workshop at Tsinghua University in 2023. We extend a warm invitation to everyone to join us in Hong Kong for this engaging and informative one-day workshop.​

The rise in fires in tall buildings globally highlights how the changing built environment has altered the fire threat. Smart Urban Resilience and Firefighting (SureFire), as part of the smart city blueprint, utilizes sophisticated data networks and AIoT technologies and achieves real-time monitoring and intelligent emergency response for fire hazards in complex urban environments. The development of a smart firefighting system will help develop future smart buildings and smart cities.
