We have now completed the sixth year of publication for Gulf Fire magazine and what a fantastic journey it has been. The success of Gulf Fire has been down to the hard work of the whole MDM Team and the fantastic encouragement and feedback received from readers and advertisers alike – our grateful thanks to you all.

This issue is packed full of in-depth and interesting features, from the latest industry news and product announcements as well as specialist feature editorial, you will not be disappointed.

As is the tradition, Gulf Fire editor Neil Wallington kicks off the issue with his Editor’s Comment and with a further fifteen in-depth and informative articles, we are sure that you will find the issue interesting – look out for the fascinating company and product profiles.

Be sure to check out Richard Hosier’s feature, ‘Is your life-safety equipment ‘fit for purpose’?’, ‘Firefighting PPE in the mining industry’ from Paul Gibson and ‘Understanding char loss and fall-off for fire-safe design of timber structures’ from Laura Schmidt.

Enjoy this issue and please continue to share your comments with us – it’s your publication as well as ours and we are always looking for ways to improve the magazine.

Please come and meet the whole Gulf Fire Team at Intersec 2022 in January and pick up a complimentary copy of Gulf Fire Issue 25 – we’ll all be there and look forward to welcoming you onto our booth.

Please take care and we all look forward to a brighter 2022.
