“Big” Issue Planned Each year FIRE ENGINEERING publishes what is called the “Fire Chiefs Conference and Buyers Guide Issue.” It commemorates, and is published just prior to, the International Association of Fire Chiefs Annual Conference which this year will be held at Toronto in September. Our long-time readers and advertisers know the issue is something special. It is generally three times the size of any monthly issue, and filled with outstanding editorial material plus a directory of practically all active fire apparatus and equipment manufacturers and suppliers. As a result, it becomes a valuable reference volume for all fire protection officials. Our editors have long planned for the “guide book” as we term it. Work is under way on it right now and come September, we feel certain that you will agree with us that it is the “big” issue of the year.
