The Emergency Service Show

See the latest development in drones and hybrid vehicles

The latest developments in drones, hybrid vehicles and PPE will all be showcased at this year’s Emergency Services Show which takes place in Hall 5 at the NEC, Birmingham, UK from 21-22 September 2016. Fire and rescue personnel and industrial brigades from around the world are invited to attend the free event to familiarise themselves with the very latest vehicles and equipment designed to help them fight fires and respond to terrorist attacks, road traffic accidents and natural disasters.

New: Drone Zone

Launched in partnership with SUAS Global, the new Drone Zone will showcase drone suppliers and bring together industry specialists with end-users. The free seminar programme includes presentations on risk management, privacy, security implications and regulations. Drone supplier Coptrz will be on hand to offer advice on how to choose the right drone and what kind of training is required. Other UAV suppliers exhibiting include Aeraccess, Excelerate, Primetech and WH Bence. Visitors with an interest in air surveillance should also pay a visit to the UK Civil Air Patrol (CAP) stand where a Cavalon autogyro will be on display.

Showcase of Latest Kit and Technology

Visitors with an interest in vehicles will find leading names such as Mercedes-Benz Trucks, BMW, Volvo Emergency Services Cars, Volvo Trucks and as well as Incident Command Units and welfare units, all types of in and on-vehicle ancillary equipment, including communications and IT.

On the Excelerate stand, visitors will be able to see the new joint command vehicle for police and fire services in Northamptonshire. Currently under construction, it is believed will be the only one of its kind in the UK and will provide a base for commanders when in attendance at large scale or major incidents.

Terberg Fire and Rescue will be launching TACR4, the latest model in its range of TACR compact aircraft vehicles. The vehicle’s multi-role capability allows the units to be used not only in an airport environment but also in the local authority, industrial and military market sectors. The unit can be reconfigured very quickly to suit various incident types for example from wildfire applications in summer seasons to winter flooding.

Winter readiness will be a theme throughout the show with a number of free seminar sessions focusing on flooding, presented by The Environment Agency, National Flood Forum and UK emergency services. Meanwhile the Flood Advisory Service team will exhibit their 40ft, roadshow trailer which is used to visit flood prone and flood hit communities providing advice on flood risk and protection.

Barrus, a leading custom-engine builder, will be showcasing the Mercury 175hp diesel outboard and the 185hp kerosene version. The diesel engine is ideal for applications where petrol is either not available or carries a fire risk.

Delta Fire will stage the official launch of its new Generation 2 Pro Series Fire Nozzles at the Emergency Services Show. It will also launch the new Delta ‘Attack’ and ‘Lay’ Packs and the new patented Nozzle Hose. Meanwhile Le Maitre will be demonstrating its new RESCUE 300 high powered smoke generator and Holmatro will display its new 5000 series cutters, which are lighter and more ergonomic than ever, significantly reducing the physical burden on the operator.

Bariquins is exhibiting its bariatric training mannequins for the first time anywhere at this year’s show and Harken Industrial’s Technical Team will be demonstrating the operational features of the PowerSeat man riding winch. Other major names confirmed in the impressive indoor and outdoor exhibition include Bristol Uniforms, PBI Performance Products, Draeger, Holmatro, Weber Rescue, Emergency One/Clan Tools & Plant, Ferno, Openhouse Products, Physio-Control, Scott Safety and Interspiro.

The latest kit and technology will also be widely discussed in the PPE and ICT Innovation Theatres, details of which will be published soon.
