Welcome to the April 2022 issue of Gulf Fire magazine. We were delighted to see so many of our readers and advertisers at Intersec in January, it was great to be back doing things in person on the show floor. As we begin to see the effects of COVID-19 dispersing we hope the return to the ‘new normal’ continues at apace.

This issue boasts some fantastic and interesting articles with Neil Wallington kicking off this issue with his Editor’s Comment, ‘Kickstarting the Gulf fire safety sector after Covid’ which looks at the resilience the fire sector has demonstrated during the global pandemic.

We are delighted to have Shamim Rashid-Sumar writing for us in this issue. Shamim has written the Industry Comment which looks at, ‘Three Critical Components of Residential Fire Safety’ and looks at the needs of getting back to basics in relation to fire safety. Iain Evans provides an interesting feature exploring sustainability and environmental issues in his feature, ‘Becoming green and the challenges for optical flame detection’.

There is also the regular news and profiles section which offers a look at the latest technology and innovation from some of the world’s fire safety equipment manufacturers.

Finally, if you are attending FDIC International 2022 in Indianapolis from 25th – 30th April, please don’t forget to visit our team. We are on Booth 3679 – come and say hello and pick up your own copy of the latest issues.
