The challenges facing the UK’s police, fire brigades and ambulance trusts have changed dramatically in the last decade. Faced with ever increasing workloads, those tasked with running our blue light services are under more pressure to make efficiency savings while still delivering excellent results.
Aside from adopting new technologies and software, many blue light services departments are looking to increase collaboration and co-operation with their counterparts. Combining command and control centres, sharing back office staff and creating joint response systems are just some of the ways that authorities are saving money while ensuring the public is still protected.
With the Policing and Crime Act 2017 further reforming policing and enables important changes to the governance of fire and rescue services to build capability, improve efficiency, increase public confidence and further enhance local accountability, this symposium provides a timely opportunity for Local Authorities, Ambulance Trusts, Police organisations and Fire and Rescue Bodies to discuss how they can react to these statutory changes and work together in the interests of effectiveness, efficiency and public safety. It will also provide all relevant partners with the opportunity to consider the implications of the UK's decision to leave the EU upon the delivery of blue-light services.
Join us for the Blue Light Services Conference 2018 where leading experts will reveal the latest innovations in delivering safer and more efficient services. Authoritative voices from the worlds of policing, fire, and ambulance services will discuss the latest innovations, analyse best practice and anticipate the challenges of the future.
