The Institute of Fire Prevention Officers (IFPO)

The Grenfell Tower Fire

The Institute of Fire Prevention Officers wishes to send its deepest condolences to all those affected by the unprecedented and tragic fire at Grenfell Tower.

We also endorse the words of our fellow fire sector professional organisations in showing the utmost respect for the London Fire Brigade and other fire and emergency services who tirelessly showed the highest degree of professionalism, bravery and resilience in tackling a fire of this magnitude.

While the search of the building continues and a full investigation into the cause is awaited, the Institute of Fire Prevention Officers will continue to work with the Fire Sector Federation (FSF) in campaigning for improvements in fire safety legislation, design and construction to ensure all premises in the UK are fire safe to live and work in.

This Institute will strive to ensure that complacency in fire safety in this country is not acceptable.

Finally, the Institute is willing to offer help and support where possible, through the professional and diverse membership of our organisation.

General Secretary IFPO
