As part of the developments in the way the Emergency Services respond to emergencies, new tabards have been purchased to designate the Incident Commander for the Police, for the Fire and Rescue Service and for the Heath Directorate. These tabards will be worn by the senior official from each of the emergency services for identification purposes.
Chief of Police, Trevor Botting said:
“A visible command of incidents across the Island is key to ensuring an effective response and management of emergencies and incidents. These tabards will allow an easy identification of the lead officer from each of the emergency responders.
“Members of the community will now see these tabards in use as they will be used for a range of incidents such as road collisions, fires and other emergencies that require a response from more than one agency.”
