We are pleased to announce that our UK ‘Technology Enhanced Emergency Services Forum’ is to be established in partnership with Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service. Our latest industry backed ‘UK Public Sector Services’ forum brings together senior level expertise from UK Emergency Services and industry bodies, with technology suppliers from the private sector. The Liverpool-based forum will identify the key issues that affect service delivery and efficiency, and the commercial opportunities available from technology adoption to help find solutions.
This established partnership will bring innovators from UK Police, Ambulance and Fire and Rescue Services together under one common aim. Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service have a reputation for being at the forefront of technology adoption and innovation over its long history. Liverpool was one of the first in the UK to adopt the steam fire engine decade before other cities. Ed Franklin, Head of Technology at Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service is one of our ‘Agenda Advisory Board’ members, who are currently helping to shape the final agenda for the forum. This first-hand experience at the helm of technology within a UK Fire Service will help to ensure the discussions taking place within our panel sessions are based on genuine end user experience and practicalities.
Ed Franklin, speaking about the partnership said: “Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service is very glad to support the UK Technology Enhanced Emergency Services forum. Technology plays a key role in supporting our vital ‘999’ emergency response infrastructure, as well as contributing to managing our resources more effectively in line with the risks facing firefighters and the communities of Merseyside.”
We look forward to working closely with Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service to ensure that UKTEES becomes the strategic meeting point for UK emergency Services, and those providing crucial products and services to ensure that our ‘Blue light’ services can do their important job efficiently, safely and effectively.
