An almost capacity audience enjoyed the presentations and posed challenging questions of the speakers and Sir Ken Knight, HM Government’s Chief Fire & Rescue Adviser, who joined the speakers at an open forum which followed. Bob Neil MP, the Fire Minister at the Department of Communities & Local Government gave an enthusiastic closing address.
