JESIP team launches new training film

The services of production company CTN/Embolden (the team behind the Run Hide Tell video) have been used to produce a new JESIP training film, which is aimed at telling the lifecycle of an incident from receipt of a call all the way through to entries being made on the JOL Online system. Obviously, the key points are demonstrating the use of the JESIP models and principles in a multi-agency response. The film uses a simulated road traffic collision involving a bus and a number of smaller vehicles resulting in casualties being entrapped with varying degrees of injuries.

Filmed at various locations in Merseyside, the production also includes interviews with many category one and two responders who provide an insight into the importance of JESIP in their organisation.

Hertfordshire Constabulary’s Chief Constable Charlie Hall, who is the Senior Responsible Officer for JESIP, said, “This JESIP training film is another excellent product developed by the JESIP team. It is for services to use in their continued efforts to embed JESIP. It is essential that all responder agencies understand JESIP and where relevant integrate it into their policies, procedures and training programmes until its use becomes business as usual.”

We would like to thank all the individuals who took part from Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service, Merseyside Police and North West Ambulance Service for all the support they provided in the making of this film. A special thank you goes to Group Manager Kevin Longshaw from Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service who project managed the film.

The film can be used in many ways: it can be watched in its entirety (16 minutes in length), which is ideal for refreshing people’s awareness of JESIP; or specific chapters can be selected to support training delivery, such as the M/ETHANE section.

Carl Daniels, who is the JESIP Deputy Senior Responsible Officer, said, “It’s been a pleasure to work with Embolden, part of the CTN Group, to create this film which, by promoting JESIP, will ultimately save lives.”

The film is available now on the JESIP website.
