Visitors to this year’s Emergency Services Show can source the very latest kit and find out about emerging technologies, whilst networking with partner agencies they could collaborate with on future fire and rescue operations. Taking place in Hall 5 at the NEC, Birmingham on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 September, The Emergency Services Show is the UK’s largest event for the emergency services. It is free-to-attend and features over 450 exhibiting companies and organisation as well as live demonstrations, simulated training and CPD-accredited seminars.
Popular returning features include the Extrication Challenge hosted by West Midlands Fire Service and judged by United Kingdom Rescue Organisation, and the First Aid & Trauma Challenge. Both challenges showcase the use of the latest technology and equipment, while the Extrication Challenge, in particular, is also a highly interactive and immersive experience for participants and show visitors alike, featuring live-stream action cameras broadcasting to large display screens.
Visitors will also be able to participate in a multi-agency simulated training exercise on The Simulation Centre stand.
CPD-accredited seminar programmes will run in four dedicated seminar theatres this year covering Lessons Learnt, IT, Emerging Technologies and Health & Wellbeing. The recent wildfires on Winter Hill in Lancashire and this year’s Ocado warehouse fire in Hampshire are among the major incidents which will be discussed in the Lessons Learnt Theatre. Visitors will also find out the recovery industry has been working to improve safety at the roadside and how pre-hospital burn care can be improved.
Individual and team resilience, PTSD, men’s mental health and the psychological impacts on control room staff are among the topics to be covered in the Health & Wellbeing Theatre
The College of Paramedics will also host its well-attended CPD training sessions on both days of the event.
In the networking hub of the show, The Collaboration Zone, over 80 emergency services, voluntary groups, charities and NGOs share details of the support they offer.
Entry to the event and parking at the NEC are free. To register to attend or to inquire about exhibiting at The Emergency Services Show 2019 visit: www.emergencyuk.com
