Working together for a resilient Birmingham.

Practice Research

King’s College London is conducting a study exploring the public experience of emergency incidents and emergency response procedures in Europe. As part of our UK data collection process, we are looking for volunteers interested in participating in a live exercise involving police, fire, ambulance, council and other agency responders. This research will help identify practices and procedures that can make emergency response more effective.

Do you live in or near the Birmingham area?

Are you in interested in learning about emergency response organisations and procedures?

Are you interested in participating in a live, interactive research exercise in which you will see and experience the actions of emergency responders first hand?

If you answered ‘YES’ to these questions, you may want to participate in this research.

Important Information:

• The exercise takes place on August 15th 2013 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. in central Birmingham.

Refreshments provided and £45 to cover the costs of participation.

• The minimum age for participation is 18 years.

• You will be asked to wear a bathing suit for part of this study.
