The Emergency Services Show, Hall 5, NEC, Birmingham, UK, 19-20 September 2018
Fire and rescue personnel and industrial brigades from around the world are invited to this year’s Emergency Services Show to see how the UK fire and rescue service is evolving to become a response, prevention and protection service for the 21 st Century.
Returning to Hall 5 at the NEC, Birmingham, UK from 19th to 20th September 2018, the unique annual event gives visitors access to the very latest expertise, training, technology, kit and support networks to prepare for future incidents including terrorist attacks, road traffic accidents and natural disasters.
“With the terrorist attacks in London and Manchester and the Grenfell Tower fire, a lot has happened over the past year and the UK’s emergency services are happy to share their experiences with international fire and rescue services,” explains Event Director David Brown.
The free two-day event will feature a host of key learning and networking opportunities. Full details of all seminar programmes – all of which will be CPD-accredited – will be published on www.emergencyuk.com in the coming months. Emergency services and partner agencies will share
their experiences of responding to real incidents in the Lessons Learnt seminar theatre (sponsored by UCLan PROTECT). Following its successful introduction in 2017, the Health & Wellbeing seminar theatre will also return. Speakers will include emergency responders who have experienced mental health challenges and organisations that are implementing change and offering support.
Last year’s event attracted a record number of 7,599 visitors and buyers, representing an eight percent increase on 2016 with a significant 12 percent increase in visitors from the fire and rescue service.
Entry to the exhibition and seminars is free, as is parking. The NEC is linked to Birmingham International Station and Birmingham Airport and is directly accessible from the UK motorway network.
