Commanders, control room staff and frontline responders in the police, fire service and ambulance service across England and Wales have been invited to complete a new survey about interoperable working and the use of Joint Emergency Services Interoperability Principles (JESIP).

The survey aims to understand how JESIP is currently working in responder organisations through exploring emergency service practitioners’ existing knowledge and awareness of JESIP and their impressions and experiences of putting it into practice.

The survey, which is being run by independent research organisation Ipsos UK, runs until the end of September. It is part of a programme of further research on JESIP that is being undertaken by the Homeland Security Group at the Home Office to strengthen the evidence base on JESIP.

Respondents can volunteer to be contacted for a follow-up interview and be part of focus groups due to take place in the autumn. It is an opportunity for staff working in emergency services to share their thoughts on JESIP and offer feedback about how the system can be improved.

JESIP is an interoperability system based around a set of key principles and underpinned by doctrine and guidance, encompassing a range of training products and courses, exercising guidelines, a system of joint learning and governance structures.

Responder organisations should ensure that emergency services personnel are aware of the JESIP models and principles and how they are applied, and to also ensure that some form of JESIP awareness training is provided annually.

The findings of the survey and focus groups will be used to directly inform decision on how JESIP is implemented in the future, as well as the development and delivery of targeted interventions to further improve JESIP embedding across the emergency services and wider responder organisations.
