The Grenfell Tower Fire

MB Fire Risk team of fire consultants wish to send our deepest condolences to all those affected by the unprecedented and tragic fire at Grenfell Tower.

We also endorse the words of our fellow fire sector professional organisations including the IFPO in showing the up most respect for the London Fire Brigade and other fire and emergency services who tirelessly showed the highest degree of professionalism, bravery and resilience in tackling a fire of this magnitude.

While the search of the building continues and a full investigation into the cause is awaited, we will continue to work with the Fire Sector Federation (FSF) via the Institute of Fire Prevention Officers IFPO in campaigning for improvements in fire safety legislation, design and construction to ensure all premises in the UK are fire safe to live and work in.

Finally, we continue to assist existing customers seeking fire compliance and fire safety and respond to inquiries from new concerned customers seeking advice. Originally posted 20/06/2017.

A credible 3-part documentary titled ‘Inside the London Fire Brigade’ episode 1, briefly covered the courageous actions and gallantry of London’s finest Firefighters from the newest recruit to Lambeth’s Borough Commander Richard Welch and the new supportive London Fire Brigade Commissioner Danny Cotton.
