23-24 September 2015, NEC, Birmingham, UK
See the latest firefighting technology and learn about successful multi-agency working from the UK’s most forward-thinking fire and rescue services by visiting The Emergency Services Show this year. Taking place at the NEC in Birmingham, UK on 23rd and 24th September, this free event is open to all ranks throughout the fire and rescue service and industrial brigades, including overseas visitors.
Training, innovation and collaboration will be covered in three dedicated seminar theatres. In the Innovation Theatre delegates can hear how West Midlands Fire Service has employed technological advancements such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (drones) and body worn video, and members of its Research and Development team will discuss the future of multi-agency emergency response.
In an era of austerity cuts there has never been more reason to increase the dialogue and co-operation between the emergency services and the voluntary sector. British charity SARAID for example has an international search and rescue team, which was deployed to the Nepal Earthquake this year. It will be exhibiting in the Emergency Response Zone alongside 80 other organisations which could support you in preparing for and responding to future incidents.
With over 400 stands, the impressive indoor and outdoor exhibition is an international showcase for leading names in firefighting equipment, search and rescue, extrication, communications, IT, protective clothing and uniforms, outsourcing, training, community safety, station facilities, water rescue and vehicles.
The NEC is next to Birmingham International Station and Birmingham Airport and directly accessible from the UK motorway network. Entry and parking at The Emergency Services Show are free.
