We are delighted with the reception you continue to give UK Fire. Now in its fifth 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 ‘Who sets the standard?’ which looks at the way in which standards are breached at almost every level and how we can effectively deal with this in public office.

With 23 feature articles, 5 profiles, 3 case studies and 5 pages of news this 88 page issue has something for everyone and provides a real cross-sector mix of information, opinion and knowledge.

Check out Paul Grimwood’s article ‘Expect building failure – firefighters must always expect and plan for worst-case scenarios’ which looks at fires in residential high-rise buildings that present tremendous challenges to firefighters, where inappropriate structural design, construction omissions and poor maintenance
lead to widespread systemic failure. Adam Walker gives us a fascinating insight into ‘Electric detection technology provides intelligent fire protection for commercial kitchens’.
