We are delighted to open this issue with an interview conducted with the Institution of Fire Engineers CEO Steve Hamm titled, ‘IFE driving change to
illuminate a fire safe future’. Steve shares with us how the IFE is adapting to help members deal with global and local changes to all roles in the sector.
From climate change to advances in technology, the launch of its new global strategy will help members keep pace with a rapidly evolving fire safety landscape.
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.
Paul White provides us with a fascinating insight with his feature, ‘Smoke control systems and the application of smoke control products to realise safe and efficient designs’, and Louis Gritzo gives a guided tour of the new FM Global Research Campus with his article, ‘Proven fire protection from the lab’.
With a further fifteen fantastic articles, the NFPA Vision, case studies, and four pages of news, you can look forward to a magazine designed to teach, inform and entertain.
We hope you enjoy this issue and we are looking forward to bringing you the next issue of IFP in December which will feature a preview of Intersec taking place in Dubai from January 16th – 18th 2021. We look forward to seeing you there and getting back to face-to-face in person meetings with friends, colleagues and new business associates.
Take care and stay safe.
