Identifying potential challenges faced by organisations involved in firefighting, safety and rescue Not learning from mistakes Fire in High rise buildings, do we have the equipment to respond to these emergencies?
If the buildings have an acceptable fire safety standard there is no need for additional equipment Developing and managing emergency national fire response at a national and local level There is a demonstrable need for a complete, objective and transparent review of the Fire and Rescue Service by a multi-disciplined team
