Learning from others

01 Feb Learning from others

A new website database has been launched to enable firefighters around the globe to learn from past incidents and help prevent injuries and losses of life caused by blazes in the future.

The site, www.ife.org.uk, which has been created by the British-based Institute of Fire Engineers, allows visitors to search fire incidents by types of severity and country where firefighters have died in the past or their safety was severely compromised.

While Phase One of the site initially deals with the causes of death of UK firefighters since the end of World War 11, the Institute is hoping that it will attract helpful contributions from around the world.
