Now in its sixth year, The Emergency Services Show is a firmly established annual show that promotes multi agency collaboration by bringing together all stakeholders involved in an emergency – from the strategic planners and first responders, to the manufacturers and suppliers of equipment and services used by these leading professionals. With over 380 exhibitors and approximately 4,000 visitors attending the successful show last year, The Emergency Services Show’s overall aim is to improve public safety.
Who can attend?
The Emergency Services Show 2011 is considered critical for those with a role in emergency planning and business continuity. From buyers and specifiers, emergency planners to responders, this show unites colleagues, contemporaries and suppliers. Every year emergency and resilience professionals with a role in procurement, emergency planning, business continuity, operations, training and recruitment attend.
Exhibitors will be displaying all manner of products and services including: personal protective equipment and workwear, business continuity and outsourcing, communications and IT, first response equipment, station equipment, training and education, vehicles and vehicle equipment and medical equipment. Exhibitors include: Bristol Uniforms, Polyco, Scott Safety, DuPont and North Fire. Professional Clothing director-e will also be exhibiting on stand 245 at the show. Many exhibitors will also be carrying out a number of live demonstrations throughout the two days.
David Brown, Show Organiser, Emergency Services (MMC) Ltd, says: “As well as allowing exhibitors to showcase their latest products and services, the exhibition provides an ideal way for professionals to discuss co-operation, ideas and initiatives and learn from each other in preparation for major events taking place over the coming years or prepare for the unexpected.”
There will also be approximately 100 end users exhibiting within the Emergency Response Zone. This zone (essential for operational staff and emergency planning officers) is made up of Category 1 and 2 Responders, Professional, Government and Voluntary organisations, and hence offers perfect networking opportunities to affiliated organisations. The Emergency Planning Society, Emergency Planning College, West Midlands Ambulance Service, the Health Protection Agency, Inland Flood Rescue Association (IFRA) and the British Red Cross are just a few of the organisations exhibiting in this specialist area. There is also a dedicated UK Search and Rescue Zone including Mountain Rescue and the Association of Lowland Search and Rescue (ALSAR).
Additionally, a water cannon from Northern Ireland police will be on display, allowing visitors to view first-hand a piece of equipment that’s use was widely discussed by English politicians to quell the riots in England.
‘Doing more with less’
At a time when budgets are being squeezed, this FREE to attend exhibition provides the perfect opportunity for visitors to research methods of ‘doing more with less’ funds. Visitors will be able to speak to exhibitors about how they may operate more effectively and efficiently, thereby resulting in the highly desirable outcome of “more for less”.
David Brown comments: “In these uncertain times it is more important than ever for all emergency professionals and associated agencies to communicate with one another, this may allow resources to be shared and budgets to be maximised. The Emergency Services Show offers the unique opportunity to meet with specialist equipment and service suppliers from the UK and abroad to facilitate mutually beneficial buying arrangements and discuss new important innovations and products.”
