"On 10th October I attended the Fire North Meeting and conference at Event City Manchester. The exhibition had many fire provider stands present and gave a very good display of their wares.
Various conferences were also held at the venue in different internal arenas, including the IFSM AGM with some excellent speakers as usual. It was nice to meet several of my previous delegates at the venue and catch up with them.
During the IFSM AGM, I was overwhelmed and surprised to be presented with a Certificate of Recognition for the team at Vulcan Fire Training in recognition of our ongoing contributions and continued work with the IFSM. This was totally unexpected and gave me an emotional moment receiving the award from David Smith - IFSM Membership Secretary.
I would like to thank the board of the IFSM for this kind gesture, the team at Vulcan for providing continued support, and our former delegates who have chosen Vulcan and joined the IFSM as members at different grades."
