JESIP joint doctrine

New JESIP doctrine

Published:  06 September, 2016

The UK's Joint Emergency Services Interoperability Programme publishes second edition of The Interoperability Framework.

Since publication of the first version of the guidance in 2013, JESIP has seen a step-change in the attitude towards joint working across the emergency response sector. The clarity it has provided about roles, responsibilities, and the practical tools it presents, have been well received.

The main changes in edition two include:

  • Content re-organised to reflect the flow of events when working together at incidents
  • More open and inclusive language appropriate for all parties involved in emergency response
  • More emphasis placed on the principles for joint working
  • Clarity about use of JESIP for all joint working
  • Specific guidance for control room joint working

Further guidance is included on developing shared situational awareness and establishing a common operating picture:

  • Includes use of METHANE outside of major incidents
  • Inclusion of guidance on logging joint decisions
  • Inclusion of Decision Controls with the Joint Decision Model
  • Clarity on use of Interoperable communications and information sharing, especially at major incidents
  • Additional section on working with the military at multi-agency incidents
  • Inclusion of the Joint Organisational Learning arrangements as the standard for multi-agency learning

The Joint Doctrine can be viewed via the JESIP website and is accessible on any type of device. There are many supporting documents and templates linked directly from it. The Joint Doctrine itself, and many of the documents, are also available to download individually for easy reference. With the new edition published, the central team is working to bring other areas of work in line with the revised version; this includes the JESIP website and mobile app.
