How digital innovation is making our communities safer

30 March 2021 Webinar

The COVID-19 pandemic has meant we've all had to embrace new ways of connecting and working together - fire and rescue services included. Hear first-hand how WMFS and their partners have adapted to the many challenges of 2020. 

Speakers will describe how they've found innovative ways to embrace technology and a digital approach to keep our communities safe. 

Host Mark Hamilton-Russell, strategic enabler of communications for West Midlands Fire Service (WMFS), will be welcoming speakers from WMFS, local authorities and partner organisations. 
 
Mark said "we've been inspired by and are incredibly proud of how staff throughout our service have risen to the challenges of 2020. The event will celebrate and showcase how we and our partners have been adapting to continue providing excellent services to our communities, including some of our most vulnerable residents." 
 
Hannah Spencer, senior resilience officer from WMFS, will outline how technology has enabled continued communications, learning and resilience. 
 
Paul Withers, protection manager for resource and transformation at Walsall Metropolitan Borough Council, will be providing valuable insight on active intervention management (aim) and how data has been used to help make communities safer. 
 
The event will be closed by Richard Westman from Kaido discussing the impact the digital working world has on our workforce.
