We are delighted to have Deryn Rizzi, Fire Chief of the City of Vaughan Fire Department, Ontario writing the IFP Comment – titled; ‘Emerging technology and standards for In-Building Auxiliary Radio Communication (ARC) Systems.’ Deryn looks at how the use of ARC systems within the built environment can assist with the safety of occupants and first responders. This is the first time we have had a fire chief addressing the fire protection community looking at how cross industry cooperation would be of benefit to life safety.

This issue is packed full of in-depth and interesting editorial, from the latest industry news and product announcements as well as technical fire safety feature articles, this issue will not disappoint. With 9 feature articles, 2 industry comments, 6 case studies, 2 profiles and 5 pages of news, there’s something for everyone!

The feature articles include John Corcoran providing a fascinating insight with ‘Reliable: A company history’; Dr. Andreas Termath looking at the world of passive fire protection with his article ‘Cold temperature behavior of water-based intumescent coatings’; and Rajko Eichhorn exploring active fire suppression with his article ‘Detecting and fighting fires at the earliest possible point in time helps mitigate risks and costs.’

We hope you enjoy this issue and look forward to seeing you at a trade show when the current situation has eased and we are allowed to meet face to face again.
Take care and stay safe.
