The December, 2014 edition of Fire Safety Science News, the official newsletter of the IAFSS is now available online. The latest issue reviews the 11th Symposium in Christchurch, New Zealand and offers many other contributed pieces with fire safety science news from around the world.
From June 1st, 2014, Dr. Rita Fahy from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has taken over the role as editor for Fire Safety Science News, the official IAFSS newsletter. She will succeed Dr. Guillermo Rein (Imperial College) who has brought our newsletter to a high level both in content and participation of members. I would like to thank Guillermo for his excellent work he did during the years he was editor of the newsletter.
Fire Safety Science News aims to be a platform for spreading the work of IAFSS members, and to be the place where fire safety scientists can read what is not readily found elsewhere, thus favoring news and trending research in the field. A digital archive of previous issues can be foundonline.
I would like to wish Dr. Rita Fahy good luck in her important new role for our organization. She will soon be in contact with all previous contributors and members of the association. If you or your organization is interested in contributing content to the next edition of Fire Safety Science News, please contact Rita directly.
