We are delighted with the reception you continue to give UK Fire. Now in its fourth year of publication it doesn’t seem five minutes ago we were having discussions as to whether the UK fire industry wanted another magazine – well the answer has been a resounding yes! Thank you all for your support and encouragement – readers and advertisers alike – it is very much appreciated.
UK Fire Editor Phil Martin kicks off the issue with his Editor’s Comment titled ‘What is the new normal’ which looks at the way the COVID-19 pandemic has made homeworking a way of life for many and how the industry will look as we start to emerge from the last 14 months of lockdown and restrictions.
With 12 feature articles, 8 profiles, 2 case studies and 4 pages of news this issue has something for everyone and provides a real cross-sector mix of information, opinion and knowledge.
Check out Ken Bullocks article ‘Fire safety in buildings awaiting cladding replacement: waking watch vs fire-alarm system’ which looks at the issues surrounding the protection of residents in buildings with flammable cladding. Rob Munro gives us an update on the TERRIFFIC project with his report, ‘Making the initial RNe
response safer… and faster’.
We are pleased to present this, our thirteenth issue, and as always, we welcome your feedback and ideas.
The market leader in fire and carbon-monoxide protection.
