The Emergency Services Show 2021 will return to its traditional September slot next year at the NEC, Birmingham. It was orginally due to take place in April.
The event will run alongside the Fire Safety Event, Security Event as well as the Health and Safety installment.
Free-to-attend, The Emergency Services Show features more than 450 exhibiting companies including leading names in search and rescue, extrication, training, protective clothing and uniforms, medical equipment, vehicles and fleet, vehicle equipment, outsourcing and safety.
New technology on display will include connected vehicles that serve as mobile communications hubs, satellite communications, ruggedised mobile computers, tablets and phones, data, cloud storage, wearable tech, connectivity, UAVs/drones, hybrid and electric vehicles, body-worn cameras and other video capture systems.
Among more than 50 organisations exhibiting for the first time in 2021 are Linkwave Technologies, Bullitt Group, Halo Technologies and BiTEA.
With COVID limiting opportunities for face-to-face training, Virtual Reality technology is also set to feature strongly, as is the use of other online technologies like Zoom and Microsoft Teams for training.
Enabling ICT applications being showcased include control room systems, data management, mobile apps for emergency service and public use and the multiple technologies now being used to speed and aid collaboration.
The Emergency Services Show 2021 will for the first time be co-located with The Fire Safety Event, The Health & Safety Event, The Security Event & The Facilities Event, creating the UK’s largest event dedicated to the protection of people, places and assets.
The Emergency Services Show is working closely with the NEC to ensure visitors enjoy a safe and secure visit, in line with the event industry’s All Secure Standard risk-assessment-based framework of COVID-19 secure industry best practice and guidance.
The NEC Venue Protect programme has put in place comprehensive social distancing measures and enhanced cleaning and sanitisation and supports testing and tracing.
