Welcome to the September 2017 issue of International Fire Fighter magazine

This latest issue boasts fantastic and interesting articles from the industry’s best and most renowned authors.

The IFF Comment is written by Rob Freese, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing at Globe Manufacturing, and explores the issue of ‘Balancing firefighter protection is like a 3 dimensional chess game.’ This is a very thought provoking issue and asks some very searching questions in relation to how the industry can do more to reduce line of duty deaths.

There is a total of sixteen feature articles in this issue, as well as company and product profiles and news from across the globe. We also feature a comprehensive Exhibitor Showcase for the forthcoming Emergency Services Show being held in Birmingham, UK in September.

Check out the third and final part of Dr Richard Gasaway’s article, ‘ The Deadly Dozen:Twelve barriers that can impact situational awareness’. Gary Wilson poses the question, ‘Plus Size Evacuation – What is the Solution?’ where he discusses the historical problem of moving heavy loads and Zach Allen looks at ways to assist with ventilation issues with his article ‘ How to choose a PPV fan’.

Finally, if you are attending the Emergency Services Show at the NEC in Birmingham, UK between September 20th – 21st please pop by Stand H68, say hello to the IFF team and pick up a free copy of IFF55.
