Peter Holland CBE, Chief Fire and Rescue Advisor to the UK Government, outlined the changing role of the fire and rescue services from firefighting towards risk management and fire prevention, and highlighted further areas for improvement, including making better use of the UK’s Fire Statistics by improving transparency and accessibility.

He lamented the time it took for the lessons from fire disasters to become available and particularly the lack of firefighters’ awareness about the dangers of sandwich panels in fires.
