JESIP aims to ensure that the blue light services are trained and exercised to work together as effectively as possible at all levels of command in response to incidents so that as many lives as possible can be saved. It was established in 2012 to address the findings from a number of major incident reviews.
In 2017, the UK experienced an unprecedented number of major incidents which required a multi-agency response, including a number of terrorist attacks. These incidents truly highlighted the importance of JESIP for all emergency responders and demonstrated that, when the JESIP principles are used effectively, the response is more effective.
The latest JESIP News provides information about JOL Online (a database used to capture any learning that could improve multi-agency working), as well as information about upcoming workshops and the Emergency Services Show next month.
