Fire, Emergency and Preparedness
Sheila Pantry OBE
Much time is spent these days searching the Internet for validated and authoritative information often resulting in out-of date sources. In this fast moving world it is essential to have quick access to validated, authoritative and constantly updated information collections. The ones brought together and maintained by information specialists are one sure way of getting good quality data.
As new research and new ways of working, with the attendant alterations in products, services and technology developments means that no-one, especially those responsible for fire, emergencies and preparedness in workplaces of all kinds, should be without the latest information.
Searchers should also be aware that the myth abounding in the world that everything is published on the Internet and is free is just not true!
Fire, Emergency and Preparedness Worldwide, arguably the world's premier collection of related validated, authoritative information aims to help all those seeking such information. Emphasis is on all aspects of fire, emergency and preparedness management principles, fire risk assessment, practices and research.
One way to quickly gain access to legislation, guidance and advice that is up-to-date and relevant is to take a 30-day free trial of Fire, Emergency and Preparedness Worldwide that is focused, affordable and easy to use.
Published by Sheila Pantry Associates Ltd., using the powerful SilverPlatter software it is accessible via the Internet Service and also on CD-ROM for those who need access to information but do not have connections to the outside world.
Fire, Emergency and Preparedness Worldwide is the premier collection of validated, authoritative information and contains two major collections - the Full Text Collection and the Bibliographic Collection.
- The Full text Collection has 4 major databases containing thousands of
pages of esily searchable full text documents, which are continually being added
to, thus updating the existing wide-ranging source of critical fire information.

fire related documents from organisations such as:

For those organisations that do not subscribe to a range of journals/magazines this is one way of ensuring that the latest news, developments and trends are available. One of the databases - from the British Standards Institution - contains references to over 3000 fire and fire related standards.
The publishers - Sheila Pantry Associates Ltd are committed to maintaining and expanding Fire, Emergency and Preparedness Worldwide, which is arguably the world's best collection of fire and fire related information.
George Collins, Chairman of the Executive Council of the Institute of Fire Prevention Officers says, "This collection of information is extremely valuable for those working in today's risk based fire industry who need up-to-date consultation, guidance and advice"
