Welcome to the September 2014 issue of International Fire Fighter magazine.

This edition is packed full of news, profiles and feature articles brought together from around the globe. Alasdair Hay gets this issue off and running with his IFF Comment on the progress of the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service since its inauguration in 2013.

We also feature a product profile on a revolutionary Water Rescue Trailer which is improving deployment times for rescuers and Chris Case gives a fascinating insight into the world of Amateur Pyrotechnics.

Our Buyers Guide looks at what’s new in Thermal Imaging Cameras and Dr Richard Gasaway explores Situational Awareness and how this vital tool is being overlooked when providing training to our first responders.
