Primetech team to attend LGA Fire Conference, Gateshead: March 13th-14th 2018
- Created: Monday, 05 March 2018 11:26
The Local Government Annual fire conference and exhibition is a key event in the conference calendar for senior fire officers and members of fire and rescue authorities.
A number of Primetech staff will be attending the conference and exhibition, including Wayne Porter, the new UK/Europe sales manager, and Lesley Wardle, the business development manager.
The terrible fire at Grenfell Tower has raised new questions about fire safety and the inspection and enforcement role of fire services. Elsewhere, 2017 has seen the fire reform agenda progressing with wide ranging implications for the fire and rescue. The 2018 conference will give attendees an opportunity to examine these changes, consider notable practice and examine how we develop this activity further.
The LGA Fire Conference and Exhibition, organised by the Local Government Association, will take place from 13th March to 14th March 2018 at The Hilton Newcastle, Gateshead in Newcastle Upon Tyne.
The LGA's Annual Fire Conference and Exhibition provides an excellent opportunity for all interested parties to discuss the Home Office' s fire reform programme. Inspection, transparency, workforce, governance and the role of Police and Crime Commissioners are all key issues for the fire and rescue sector that will be touched on at the conference.
