Emergency Services | Westminster Hall

Local initiatives and innovation are important in increasing cooperation across the emergency services.


Key messages

The emergency services already work together successfully on a day-to-day basis to save lives, protect communities and prevent immediate and future harm to the public. Local initiatives and innovation are important in increasing cooperation, which is already extensive.

The work undertaken by the services is varied and may include dealing with a fire at a residential property, attending a road traffic accident, dealing with a major incident (such as the crash on the A27 of a plane participating in the Shoreham Air Show) and working with young people on health and road safety.
