Are you and the LFB looking at how you can work with London’s world-leading tech sector to create and trial building and fire safety solutions across the capital?

London Fire Brigade (LFB) officers work with industry across a range of forums, committees and standard bodies and welcomes innovative solutions to building and fire safety. For example, officers have had significant input into the standard for building evacuation systems (BS8629), are active in the field of alternative fuels and connective technologies and are involved with forums dealing with modern methods of construction. However, it is essential that innovate solutions have been sufficiently researched and tested, so that they do not pose a risk to public safety. As a public service and regulator, LFB cannot endorse products or provide commercial advantage to private sector companies.
