The Emergency Services Show has announced that a record number of visitors attended the award-winning event at the NEC on 21 and 22 September.

The UK’s largest event for the emergency services attracted over 10,100 visitors and buyers for the first time in its history, with strong representation from across all the emergency services including police, fire and rescue, ambulance, and search and rescue.

The show’s visitors attended a programme of over 80 CPD-accredited seminars running in six theatres covering Lessons Learnt, Emerging Technologies, Health & Wellbeing, Future Policing, the College of Paramedics and, new this year, First Responder which focused on improving collaboration between the emergency services and security industries.

The indoor and outdoor exhibition featured over 450 exhibitors where visitors could source new technology and products from the leading names in public safety, medical & fire-fighting equipment, vehicles, drones, command & control, satellite & blended communications, search & rescue, extrication, water rescue, CBRNE, first response, protective clothing & uniforms, training, community safety, and station facilities.

In an exclusive interview with IFSJ, David Brown, Emergency Services Show Director, commented: “When you’re so involved in organising the event, you take everything for granted and when you take a step back like now and are asked what’s there – it’s the best and biggest show we’ve ever put on since we launched in 2006 and I believe the show now truly reflects what a fantastic sector the fire and rescue services is and the brilliant work that they do along with the other emergency services. It is truly collaboration at its best.”
