Martin Bainbridge

The Institute of Fire Prevention Officers

Full Commercial Assessor

During my 40 years plus experience in the fire industry I served for 27 years in the London Fire Brigade to Watch Manager level then 6-years specialising in NHS hospital healthcare settings as the Fire Officer, managing fire risk and undertaking fire assessments.

I joined the Fire Risk Assessor register in 2011 and setup MB Fire Risk providing fire risk assessment and training at various premises including residential care homes, schools, nurseries, churches and other places of assembly etc.

I passed and was awarded a Fire Stopping Diploma in 2017 and in recognition of my contribution to the fire sector was elevated to Fellow of the IFPO. I work mainly in the South-East for regular and new customers and have a pool of competent fire officers to call upon to assist with larger fire risk assessment, training or fire consultancy projects in the UK.

While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal.
