IFEDA general manager Graham Ferris said the Association is excited to support the event, he said: “IFEDA is delighted to be taking part and supporting a great networking and information-rich event. I’m keen to raise our association’s profile, especially the fact that we offer a range of, CPD accredited, fire alarm modules in addition to our traditional fire extinguisher courses.
“It’s good to meet up with our Midlands-based members and, of course, explaining the help and assistance IFEDA can give potential members. I feel that The Fire Safety Event is the ideal vehicle to meet all my objectives.”
Event director Tim Else added: “We are delighted that IFEDA is the latest association to offer its support to The Fire Safety Event. Its members are exactly the type of audience we are committed to attracting to the event. Our attendees will benefit greatly from the key fire safety training and advice on offer from the IFEDA.
