Fire Sector Federation holds debut event

The Fire Sector Federation (FSF) will be holding its debut event at the House of Parliament on 27 November. The Fire Safety Enforcement – Fit for purpose seminar will be held in conjunction with the All Party Parliamentary Fire Safety and Rescue Group.

The seminar will discuss the regulatory framework that applies to fire safety within the built environment and investigate how compliance can be achieved throughout the life of a building. It will include perspectives from Building Control, designers and building managers from a range of industry sectors, as well as discussing the fire risk assessment process and on-going control and maintenance.

Speakers will include Brian Martin of the Department for Communities and Local Government; Paul Fuller of the Chief Fire Officers’ Association; Steve Evans of the Building Control Alliance; Dave Sibert of the Fire Brigades Union; and representatives from a range of industry sectors.
Starting at 12.30pm, the seminar will conclude with a drinks reception from 4.15 to 6pm, providing delegates with an opportunity to network with speakers, attending MPs, industry representatives and Government officials. 

The FSF is also supporting two other key fire sector events during the autumn; the Fire Sector Summit; and the Emergency Services Show 2012.

The Fire Sector Summit, taking place at Wembley Stadium on 23-24 October 2012, attracts senior figures and influencers from across the fire industry, built environment, national resilience, government, insurance, and the public and private sector. It provides a mix of plenary and workshop content designed to facilitate the exchange of information, knowledge and best practice on the key issues and challenges facing the sector. The BBC’s John Humphreys will facilitate a ‘Question Time’ panel session and offer a reflective view on how fire safety could impact wider business interests.

The Fire Sector Federation will also be exhibiting at the Emergency Services Show in Stoneleigh Park, Coventry on 21-22 November 2012. FSF representatives will be on hand on Stand E45, Hall 3 to answer questions about the Federation and to discuss fire-related issues or concerns which may impact on the built, natural, fire and rescue service or national resilience environments.
