Suppliers such as Bristol Uniforms, Babcock, Scott Safety, WH Bence, Draeger, Serco, North Fire, Vauxhall, The Fire Service College and Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service (DSFRS) Training Academy will be amongst over 400 exhibitors on hand to demonstrate their latest innovations and developments and to talk about cost saving initiatives.

There will also be a number of exciting partnering and educational opportunities available to visitors including:

The JESIP National Interoperability Summit

The Joint Emergency Services Interoperability Programme (JESIP) is a two year project that aims to improve how the blue light services work together at complex incidents. Following the establishment of the Joint Emergency Services Interoperability Programme (JESIP) CFOA, AACE and ACPO will be bringing together leaders and strategic managers from UK Cat 1 & 2 responders at the first ever high profile national summit addressing this critically important topic. Running alongside The Emergency Services Show the conference will take place midday on Wednesday 21 November to midday Thursday 22 November.

CBRN Decontamination Workshop

The EPS CBRN Professional Working Group, in association with the Government Decontamination Service, will be holding a CBRN Decontamination Workshop at The Emergency Services Show 2012. The workshop has been developed following concerns amongst local authority staff about the challenges posed by decontamination after a CBRN incident and uncertainty in how to deal with such events. The workshop aims to educate local authority staff, in particular, in the issues around CBRN decontamination and to improve their ability to manage decontamination incidents.

The workshop, sponsored by Scott Safety and the Health Protection Agency, will include speakers from the Cabinet Office, Home Office and Government Decontamination Service. The cost of attending this one day workshop is £35 for the public sector and EPS members and £45 for others.
