According to this Mirror article:

One firefighter, who did not want to be named, told the Sunday Mirror: “We’ve been told by our management don’t speak, ideally. The coroner has said it could obstruct the investigation. I don’t know how it can – what’s happened has happened, but that’s what we’re being told.”

Have the management of the firefighters forbidden them from speaking out about this disaster?

The BBC appears to confirm this. Their article Grenfell firefighters 'hampered by equipment' says,

Firefighters have been told not to talk to the media but Newsnight obtained a copy of the "incident mobilisation list", the document which details every appliance dispatched to the incident.

The programme was also sent anonymous accounts from a number of men and women involved in the operation.

    If the OP doubts a newspaper, how does citing another settle the question in any significant way? – Sklivvz Jul 9 '17 at 10:23

    I was just hoping that the BBC would be seen as more authoritative/reliable than the Mirror. – ChrisW Jul 9 '17 at 10:36
