Blog for FSM website

WELCOME TO the new website for Fire and Security Matters and it's my pleasure to pen the very first blog on the site. It seems logical that I take this opportunity to explain what FSM is all about.


I've been lucky enough to work as a journalist and event organiser in the fire sector for the last three years and am delighted to be launching FSM, which will be an independent voice for facilities and risk management. The magazine and website are not answerable to any membership body or trade association but we are pleased to be partnering with the leading bodies so we can get valuable viewpoints from all of them on key issues facing the fire, security and facilities sectors.


FSM will provide readers with in-depth technical articles, which will share innovation and best practice to address key issues relating to life safety and property protection. Industry experts will provide case studies on how they have worked in a multitude of environments to limit or eliminate risk from fire, security, cybercrime, flooding and terrorism to name just a few. 


We have more than 43,000 readers who receive a newsletter on a weekly basis that contains all the latest news and views from this website. FSM also has a great line-up of opinionated industry figures who will not pull any punches with their views, such as Fire Brigades Union general secretary Matt Wrack, leading fire safety lawyer Warren Spencer and the Secret Risk Assessor (whose identity I can't disclose for fear of death!). 


All the latest news, prosecutions, products and services will also be included in every issue of FSM and if you can't wait to receive a print copy make sure you check back for daily updates of these sections on this website. The magazine will also give extensive insight into the unparalleled line-up of free educational content on offer at the Fire Safety Events, which are being held on 21-23 March 2017 at the NEC Birmingham, 3-4 May at Glasgow SEC and 10-11 October in EventCity Manchester. FSM will take a detailed look at the seminars, which offer the most high-profile list of speakers assembled at a free-to-attend fire safety event in the UK. You can find out full information on the seminars at www.firesafetyevents.com


In 2017, FSM will publish four print issues that come out in March, May, June and October. If you're not a current subscriber you can register to receive copies of the magazine on the homepage at www.fsmatters.com you can also view a digital edition of the magazine for free on this website.
