Registered Life Safety Fire Risk Assessor with the Institute of Fire Engineers. Ex-Fire Safety Officer for Dorset and Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service. Cardan Fire was set up in 2020 upon my retirement from the fire service and we provide fire risk assessment, fire training, health and safety and fire legal services.

Always willing to have that conversation if you need some free advice - just drop me an email or give me a call.

I started working for Dorset Fire Brigade in 1989 and retired from the newer combined authority, Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service in 2020. During that time, I worked operationally at fire stations in Christchurch and Bournemouth and in fire safety where I achieved the role of Deputy Head of Fire Safety for Dorset Fire & Rescue Service. I was one of the few officers who had the level of authority to prohibit dangerous premises.

I was also a qualified fire investigation officer – so I understand fire having spent my career preventing it and investigating its behaviour.

I also specialised in event fire safety. Being a statutory member of Safety Advisory Groups, I liaised and worked closely with events, councils and other emergency services.
