It seems hard to believe that it’s been almost 7 years since we launched Gulf Fire – where does the time go?

It was great to catch up with so many readers and clients during a fantastic Interschutz in Hannover. Thank you to everyone who stopped by the MDM booth for a chat and to pick up a copy of the magazine.

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 sixteen articles from the industry’s leading professionals, we are sure that you will find this issue interesting and informative. Look out for the fascinating feature from Firedos’ David Munroe and Frank Preiss looking at ‘Why use CAF in ARFF?’.

Neil Pedersen takes a look at the importance of specialist rescue training in his article ‘Trench rescue: low-frequency but high-hazard incidents’, the Gulf Fire Interview is with Paul Pope from Global Fire Equipment (GFE) where we look at ‘Exploring entire life-cycle costs’ and Scott Starr gives provides a standards update with ‘Bus fire system requirements: what’s been happening since the introduction of UNECE R107?’.

We hope you enjoy this edition – the October issue will mark the seventh year anniversary for Gulf Fire and we will have some exciting news in relation to an event we are planning in early 2023 to celebrate the ongoing development of Gulf Fire.

Stay safe and take care.

Fire, smoke and acoustic seals perform a vital function in fire-rated doors, providing effective acoustic protection during everyday use while preserving life and containing property damage should the worst happen.
