We were delighted with the reception the UK Fire team were given at the Emergency Services Show (ESS), the comments and feedback we have received about the newest publication in the MDM stable is amazing.

In line with tradition UK Fire Editor Phil Martin kicks off the issue with his Editor’s Comment titled ‘Do we have to look back in order to look forward?’ which looks to provide a balanced view to many of the issues affecting UK fire and rescue services since Grenfell.

With 17 feature articles, 4 profiles and 5 pages of news this issue has something for everyone and provides a real cross-sector mix of information, opinion and knowledge.

Check out ‘The new addressing system helping UK emergency services’ by Geordie Palmer which looks at how what3words is making locating incidents so much more efficient. Nathalie Holden presents her article, ‘Women in the Fire Service drive a movement for a more progressive fire and rescue service’ which identifies the positive work being done by Women in the Fire Service (WFS). Be sure to check out our event review on which looks at the success of the UK Fire Sailing Challenge 2019.

We will continue our series profiling UK Fire and Rescue Services in the next issue with Cornwall FRS.
We are pleased to present our seventh issue and, as always, we welcome your feedback and ideas before presenting the next issue in February 2020.
