Delegates from the Emergency Services Conference

The latest biennial Emergency Services Conference was held on Tuesday 11 November 2014. Hosted and organised by the School of Social Sciences' Emergency Services Research Unit, the event aimed to create a space for all emergency services practitioners and academics to come together and share research, knowledge and practical concerns.

This year's event brought together academics from all across the UK, Europe and from the USA and Canada, as well as practitioners from all the traditional blue light services. As Kim Hagen, from Trilateral Research and Consulting said: "It feels like a community gathering, which I think is very special."

The conference presents the Anne Eyre Award for distinguished contribution to emergencies-related endeavour.

This year we were very pleased to be able to acknowledge the work of Professor Robert E. England of Oklahoma State University, who has done a vast amount of practical and academic good for the international fire service community. The conference was also very pleased that O2 offered a prize for the best Practitioner Paper on Communications, which was awarded to Steve Chu, Head of Strategy and Engagement at South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.
