Joint Emergency Services Group – Innovation in Communications, Information Sharing and Control

Michelle Williams
Programme Manager,
Programme Manager – Joint Emergency Services Group - All Wales Communications Projects

Emergency Services are continually adapting to meet the demands of the modern world. Not only do they have to work smarter, but have to do so against the backdrop of austerity and increased threats such as terrorism, natural hazards and major accidents.

This has led to working in association with partners, better sharing of information and improving communications. A key aspect has been identifying issues of joint interest where collaboration will benefit all the emergency services to deliver innovation to service delivery and improving services to the citizen in Wales.

Through a combination of delivering large GB wide projects such as the Emergency Services Mobile Communication Programme (ESMCP) in a smarter way and developing bespoke projects in Wales which are then adopted by emergency services elsewhere such as Multi Agency Information Transfer (MAIT), the emergency services in Wales often lead the way in agile delivery.

This session will provide delegates with:

• The Emergency Service landscape in Wales
• Emergency Service Information Sharing and Communications
• Opportunities to deliver in a joined up, efficient and effective way in Wales
