Fire Safety Matters launches new industry podcast

16 July 2020

FIRE SAFETY Matters has launched a new fortnightly podcast which is now available to download or stream for free.

The FSM Podcast will be hosted by Editor Brian Sims and Western Business Media's CEO Mark Sennett and will be available fortnightly on a Wednesday. The podcast is sponsored by The Fire Safety Event, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham on 22-23 September 2020. 

The first episode features an in-depth interview with leading fire safety lawyer Warren Spencer who has prosecuted more cases under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 than anyone else. Warren offers his views on the proposed Fire Safety Bill and reveals what he thinks should be done to modernise the Fire Safety Order.

There's also an interview with Fire Industry Association director Paul Pope who has recently joined Global Fire Equipment. Paul explains why he's taken on the new role, what's in the product pipeline and how COVID-19 is impacting the business.

Brian and Mark also take a look at the biggest news stories from the past week and share their views on the headlines.

The second episode will be available to view on Wednesday 29 April 2020 and features an interview with Apollo Fire Detectors' Salvy Vittozzi. If you would like to ask any questions about Apollo Fire Detectors' systems or pose legal questions to Warren Spencer then all you have to do is post these on twitter using #FSMPodcast.
