This anthology, offered free of charge, aims to outline the pathways towards a more secure and prepared future in terms of fire safety.

A diverse array of contributors shaping fire safety dialogue

Among the contributors are notable figures such as Chris Philp MP, Minister of State for Crime, Policing, and Fire, Sir Ken Knight, former London Fire Commissioner, and Yvette Williams MBE, founder of Justice4Grenfell.

Their essays are complemented by insights from other leaders across the fire safety spectrum, including Mark Wilson from HSE, Steve Hamm of the Institution of Fire Engineers, and Dr Jill Tolfrey of The Fire Fighters Charity.

This diverse group of contributors ensures a broad and comprehensive exploration of future fire safety challenges and solutions.

Collaboration and innovation: key themes of the anthology

He shared an inspiring story about a fire and rescue service leader who found an innovative solution to a pressing problem, thanks to new technology.

This anecdote underscores the anthology’s purpose: to bridge knowledge gaps and foster a culture of learning and humility in the fire safety sector.

Moore emphasized the importance of understanding the unknown and the value of continuous learning from both the supply and demand sides of fire safety products and services.

A call to rethink fire safety practices

Moore expressed his gratitude towards the expert contributors, noting that their insights have prompted a reevaluation of working methods within the fire safety sector.

He hopes that the anthology will inspire readers and provide new perspectives on the most pressing fire issues of our time.
