The Emergency Services Show 2012
New developmentsOne of the most notable aspects of the show was the huge array of products and services available, in particular those exhibitors bringing new technology, or pre-existing technology which has now become affordable for the majority rather than the few. Seemingly the complete range of products and gadgets now available to the emergency services were on display, from high protection anti-riot vehicles on display in Hall 1, air reconnaissance pilotless drones in Hall 3 and the hyper-real manikin and faux-trauma dummies in Hall 2. Affordable infrared and heat detection technology, high-tech protective clothing and ultra-realistic training manikins are some examples of products, traditionally only available on a mass scale to institutions such as the military, but now obtainable for fire and rescue, first responder and police institutions and trusts.
