We have made it to the end of our fourth year and what a fantastic journey it is turning out to be. The success of UK Fire magazine has been down to the hard work of the whole MDM Team and the fantastic encouragement and feedback received from readers and advertisers alike – our grateful thanks to you all.
This issue is 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.
As is the tradition, editor Phil Martin kicks off the issue with his Editor’s Comment and with a further eighteen in-depth and informative articles, we are sure that you will find the issue interesting – lookout for the fascinating company and product profiles.
Check out the first part of David Dalrymple’s article, ‘Operational concerns involving electric and hybrid vehicles at vehicle-related incidents’ in addition to ‘Understanding char loss and fall-off for fire-safe design of timber structures’ from Laura Schmidt who provides a fascinating insight in the world of fire investigation.
We are honoured to carry a special feature on the FBU Red Plaque Scheme which honors fallen fighters, provided by Neil Wallington. Neil gives us the background of the recent ceremonies which remember two fallen London firefighters.
