It seems hard to believe that it’s been almost 5 years since we launched Gulf Fire – where has the time gone?

This issue is packed full of in-depth and interesting editorial, from the latest industry news and product announcements as well as specialist feature articles, it is certainly a must-read.

With thirteen articles from the industries leading professionals, we are sure that you will find this issue interesting and informative. Look out for the fascinating Special Report from G3 System’s Chris Thain looking at ‘Providing aircraft rescue and firefighting services during a pandemic event’.

James McNay takes a look at the issue of detector placement in his article ‘Introduction to BS60080:2020 guidance on the placement of detection devices’, Des Tidbury gives us an update on Bahrain Civil Defence in his feature ‘Bahrain Civil Defence, working to achieve excellence’ and Johan Larsson gives an insight to issues caused by extreme ambient temperatures with his article ‘Increased fire risks in vehicles during the hot summer months’.

We hope you enjoy this edition – the October issue will mark the five year anniversary for Gulf Fire and we will have some exciting news in relation to an event we are planning in early 2021 to celebrate the ongoing development of Gulf Fire.

Stay safe and take care.
