John Bonney, Chief Officer of Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service said: " I have been committed to learn from what happened at Shirley Towers both for the families but also to protect my firefighters in the future.
The inquest has also heard how we have already made changes in equipment, training and procedures. But there are also national implications that arise from this fire and I am already making arrangements to ensure that the fire service as a whole benefits from the learning from this tragedy.
I cannot, guarantee to take my firefighters out of harms way at every incident. To make them totally safe on all occasions would mean that they could not do their job to protect and save the lives of others. Something that Jim and Alan did themselves at Shirley Towers."
