The Emergency Services Show, Hall 5, NEC, Birmingham, UK, 19-20 September 2018
Full details of the expert-led, free seminar programmes running at this year’s Emergency Services Show, have been published on www.emergencyuk.com
Four separate seminar programmes – Lessons Learnt (sponsored by UCLan PROTECT), Collaboration, Health & Wellbeing and Communications (sponsored by Excelerate) – will be available to visitors at the free-to-attend event which takes place at the NEC, Birmingham, UK from 19-20 September 2018.
The programmes feature an impressive line-up of senior speakers from the international fire and rescue community including representatives from the Federation of European Fire Associations (FEU), The Resilience Advisors Network (RAN), International Fire Chiefs and UK ISAR. There is a strong focus on collaboration and the efficiencies that can be achieved through data sharing and technology, whilst
addressing head-on the health, safety and psychological needs of individual fire, rescue and call centre staff when responding to incidents.
The Manchester Arena attack and a unique nuclear emergency training exercise held in Denmark are among the new case study sessions to be confirmed this month. Fire fighter safety regarding smoke contamination, and supporting female colleagues working through the menopause are interesting new additions to the highly topical health and wellbeing programme.
International collaboration case studies will be presented each morning by representatives from
Canada, USA, Belgium, the Netherlands and Slovakia. European CBRN developments, psychological support for call handlers and opportunities for UK experts to work within the European Civil Protection Mechanism are among the topics to be discussed.
The event itself also offers a valuable and unique opportunity to learn and network with other blue light services, enabling vital collaborations and effective co-response.
Entry to the exhibition and seminars, as well as parking, remains free. The NEC is linked to Birmingham International Station and Birmingham Airport and is directly accessible from the UK motorway network.
