Emergency Planning College: latest seminar
Traditionally, when managing major incidents, the focus for commanders has been to bring the area back under control without the requirement for security and protection. More recently, and with world-wide terrorist attacks, questions over responders’ safety have become paramount to ensure their ability to carry out their duties to save lives and reduce harm.
Robert Flute, Ambulance Advisor for National Ambulance Resilience Unit (NARU), will deliver his views on the events of the Paris attacks and how the emergency services and supporting agencies are likely to respond should a similar event occur in the UK.
Outlining the revised Joint Emergency Services Interoperability Principles (JESIP), Robert’s presentation will consider how agencies are able to work cohesively to manage the response to an incident - especially important when dealing with multi-sited events.
Finally, Robert’s presentation will outline his experience of the value that HM Forces play in supporting the work of emergency responders, in particular with the operations of the National Ambulance Service’s (NARU) Hazardous Area Response Team (HART).
