Welcome to the new look Fire & Rescue magazine! Here you will find a sharper, updated layout and a cornucopia of new features and regular articles that we hope you’ll enjoy. New regulars include practical “how to” sections (here on how to move safely in shallow flood water); “questions and answers” (eg would you use PPV in a backdraught situation?); and “photo corner”, where you can see your great photos in print.

Besides the new regulars we have packed together a real mixture of the hard-hitting and the light-hearted, to better reflect this unique profession and industry. Check out our exclusive interview with former FEMA director Michael D Brown, our update of the EU FLoodCommand project, and lie back and enjoy the coverage of that excellent event that draws together firefighters globally, the World Firefighters Games 2008.

If you would like to contribute in any way to Fire & Rescue magazine we’d love to hear from you! Get in touch on
Next issue we have a focus on fire and rescue in the Middle East, so if you have any stories, don’t hesitate!
