University of Leeds Publishes Report Focused on ESN for Fire, Rescue Services
Tuesday, September 01, 2020 | Comments

The University of Leeds has published a significant research report entitled Information and Communication Technologies in the Fire and Rescue Services in England. The report has a distinct focus on the U.K.’s Emergency Services Mobile Communications Programme (ESMCP) and the Services’ readiness for and confidence in the UK’s Emergency Services Network (ESN).

While this in-depth report is focused on fire and rescue services in England, its findings will be of interest to any organizations or services around the world involved in a critical communications project or intending to migrate to a broadband-based system.

The research, led by Professor David Allen of Leeds University Business School, was commissioned by the UK Home Office Fire Directorate and supported by ESMCP. In addition to examining factors relating to ICT in English Fire and Rescue Services, the report examines attitudes and preparations in relation to ESMCP. Similar research into policing was undertaken by Leeds University Business School in 2016.

BAPCO and TCCA will host a webinar 8 September in which Allen will present the key findings, and the recommendations to address highlighted issues. Allen will be joined by Steve Whatson, deputy director of the ESMCP, to answer questions specifically related to the ESMCP and ESN, and Ian Taylor, from the U.K.’s National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) who will take questions specifically on the UK’s Fire and Rescue Services.
