We are delighted by the positive feedback we continue to receive from you for UK Fire and always take your comments on board when developing the next issue of the magazine.
Our aim with UK Fire is to deliver a fire sector publication that truly covers all elements of fire engineering to understand and share how working together delivers a safer environment in which society can live, work and visit.
Our Editor Phil Martin introduces the issue with his Editor’s Comment which questions ‘Who is responsible?’ looking at issues surrounding lack of governmental action following Grenfell and the failure by Whirlpool to deal with the known fire threat from their tumble dryers.
We are delighted that Gemma Alcock has provided the UK Fire Comment which examines ‘The drone revolution: unlocking the next level’. Stewart Kidd provides his thoughts and concerns over the missed opportunities two years on from the Grenfell Tragedy.
Issue six contains a massive twenty feature articles as well as product showcases and industry news, providing a real cross sector mix of information, opinion and knowledge.
Check out ‘The evolution of SCBA – How innovation is improving safety, by Jason Traynor. Paul Henson looks at ‘Glasgow School of Art, Notre Dame… what next?’ whilst Raman Chagger looks at the ‘Development of tests to assess video flame and video smoke detectors’..
We continue to profile UK Fire and Rescue Services and we are thankful to Justin Johnston who has provided an insight into Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service.
We are pleased to present this edition which compliments the Emergency Services Show with a Show Preview and twelve page exhibitors guide. We will continue to welcome your feedback and ideas before presenting the next issue in November 2019.
