Processes and procedures for fire safety and firefighting in tall buildings will be a focus for this year’s ESS.

In the Lessons Learnt seminar theatre the founder of the Tall Building Fire Safety Network, Russ Timpson will present a session on tall building fires in the wake of the recent Grenfell Tower fire.

In the outside exhibition area Emergency One/Clan Tools will demonstrate the high reach of its turntable ladders. Crofton Engineering, specialist fabricator and installer of fire training buildings and live fire simulators, will present its most recent UK installations, including a high-rise tower commissioned by Hampshire Fire & Rescue Service.
