What is FIG UK?

The Fire Information Group (UK), commonly known as FIGUK, is an information exchange co-operative in the fire, loss prevention and resilience fields.

FIGUK membership comprises information professionals, librarians, researchers, firefighters, fire and rescue services, forensic and fire investigators, fire information publishers and others, from a range of well respected organisations. See the Directory of Members.

Members benefit by being able to identify specific areas of expertise, industry contacts, printed and electronic published information and help in lobbying for better information provision in this important sector.

FIGUK was established in 1988. Members meet every six months to discuss new developments in members' areas of expertise. More general topics such as copyright issues and electronic forms of information are also discussed. A newsletter and minutes are produced after each meeting.
