Have you booked onto JESIP?


As a core emergency service, we are at the heart of major incidents.

Multi-agency training is still available to help EEAST commanders and officers work better with other emergency services in these scenarios.

As part of the Government’s first-ever joint emergency services interoperability programme (JESIP) EEAST is heading up the training for all three emergency services.

JESIP is all about the tri-emergency services learning how each one responds on the scene of a major incident, what their principal aims are and how our decisions impact each other. The course teaches incident commanders a new joint decision making model which will help to save lives and reduce harm.

Course details

Dates coming up this month include:

  • May 6: Tactical - Norfolk Fire Service Bowthorpe training centre
