We are delighted to unveil the latest magazine from MDM Publishing Ltd. The idea for a UK specific magazine dedicated to the fire safety and fire and rescue industry had been on the MDM ‘drawing board’ for about 6 months. Following extensive market research with the readers and advertisers of our existing titles, it was obvious that the appetite was there so we launched the project back in September 2017.
We are delighted to welcome Phil Martin to the MDM Team and he has done a sterling job sourcing the authors and collating the editorial for this launch issue. Packed full of in-depth and interesting features, from the latest industry news and product announcements as well as specialist feature editorial, you will not be disappointed.
Phil kicks off the issue with his Editor’s Comment and we are delighted that Bill Gough has provided us with the challenge to deliver content that maintains the emphasis on firefighter safety.
With a further sixteen articles, we are sure that you will find the issue interesting. We are extremely proud to have been given an insight into the workings of Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service and the ‘Service Profile’ gives the reader an understanding of this forward thinking and innovative organisation.
Check out ‘Aspiring to an addressable future’ by Peter Massingberd-Mundy which looks at the technique of analysing samples of air, Roger Startin looks at ‘A change of clothing’ and we ask the question ‘What is an Evacuation Chair and do I need one?’
Enjoy this first edition and we look forward to presenting before you the next issue in August 2018 – please let us know your thoughts or ideas.
