How can the evolution of new firefighting technology create better monitoring, communication and accountability for firefighters?

Join us for a conversation with some of the UK’s leading experts on the application of new technologies for increased firefighter safety and efficiency. We will be discussing the vital role of telemetry and connectivity on the increasingly complex firefighter ground, and why innovation is a priority within all fields of the industry.

Our host Paul Hutton is joined by Kevin Tomkins, First Responder Specialist at MSA Safety, as well as Ted O’Brien, Director of Product and Quality at the Fire Service College, and Duncan White, Group Editor at MDM Publishing.

With decades of joint experience in every aspect of firefighting, from wearing breathing apparatuses on the job to designing customer-focused solutions, our guest speakers will be discussing the dangers of inefficiencies including lost connections on the fire scene, and the benefits of strong communication and data measurements.

We will also take a look at the solutions available on the market today to tackle some of these important challenges.
