Master of the Company
The prime objective and intention of The Worshipful Company of Firefighters is to promote the development and advancement of the science, art and the practice of firefighting, fire prevention and life safety. It also encourages good professional behaviour and an exchange of information between Members of the Company and others who work in allied fields.
The Company has undertaken to maintain the traditions and customs of the City of London and to pledge support to the Lord Mayor and Aldermen in all matters relevant to the life and dignity of the City.
Once again the WCoFF had a stand at FIREX 2015 thanks to the organisers UBM. This is our showcase to the Fire Industry and a great deal of interest was shown both from the delegates and exhibitors alike. The Fire Fighters Ball was also promoted at this event and again a great deal of interest was shown. Past Master Viv Jones was interviewed by FIREX TV which was streamed over FIREX site and from their website.
