Joint Emergency Services Interoperability Principles

JESIP describes the skills to command and control major incidents, into the daily business of the emergency services and wider responders. JESIP is dedicated to sharing learning between agencies, through the JOL ONLINE learning platform, common to all 105 emergency services and LRF community.

The Joint Emergency Services Interoperability Principles (JESIP) uses the recommendations and findings from a number of  Major Enquiry Reports

JESIP commissioned the College of Policing, in collaboration with the National Ambulance Resilience Unit (NARU) and the Fire Service College, to develop the joint emergency services interoperability training. Interoperability is aligned to the JESIP Doctrine and is targeted at the operational and tactical commanders from the tri-services and what they will do on the scene during the initial stages of a major or complex incident.

Ongoing interoperability commander-training is being delivered jointly by police, fire and ambulance trainers to managers and commanders from the whole resilience community.

Work is ongoing to ensure that interoperability training is embedded throughout appropriate learning programmes across the services, and that training exercises are planned and regularly refreshed.

Both awareness and command training is delivered to  officers and staff, such as control room operators, so that the emergency services better understand each other's expertise and ways of working. By exercises sharing technology such as the JESIP App  and operational learning, JESIP trained commanders can improve how they deal with an emergency and save lives.
