The Emergency Services Show returns to the NEC on 23-24 September 2015

Published:  07 April, 2015

A new seminar theatre dedicated to training will feature at The Emergency Services Show, which will return to the NEC in Birmingham from 23-24 September 2015. Free to attend, the new seminars will be led by experts who run specialist courses for emergency services personnel, and will expand the offering of free learning opportunities already available to visitors.

The growing exhibition for emergency responders has already attracted many of the most respected training providers in the industry including the Tactical Training Centre, NHS Ambulance Service First Aid Training consortia (NASFAT), Fire Training Group, PGI Training, Ferno, University of St Andrews, Coventry University and London Metropolitan University.

Organisers will also be running seminar programmes on multi-agency working and innovation (successfully launched at the 2014 event), as well as the popular College of Paramedic CPD Workshops. Meanwhile the indoor and outdoor exhibition will feature over 400 companies and organisations, some of whom will run workshops and live demonstrations on their own stands.  

Aimed at developing relationships and partnerships between voluntary organisations and the blue light services, the Emergency Response Zone is a networking focus of the exhibition and will feature many new exhibitors this year including Fire Brigades Union, Arson Prevention Forum, CFB Risk Management, South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust and Road Safety GB Academy.

John Halfpenny, policing skills trainer, West Mercia and Warwickshire Police described last year’s show as an invaluable and enjoyable chance to network and appreciate the challenges, strengths and capabilities of partner agencies in the emergency services and support organisations or responders. Mark Atton, ERA head of defence called ESS a great one stop shop for emergency services capability, intelligence and expertise.

With something new around every corner, The Emergency Services Show provides a unique opportunity for emergency responders to learn, network and progress their careers. It is also a showcase for the best examples of industry collaboration and innovation. ‘The exhibition halls will be buzzing with knowledge and expertise and we urge officers of all ranks, across all emergency services, to take full advantage,’ said event director David Brown.
