Recent events such as Paris, Barcelona and London demonstrate the threats that civil security forces have to deal with. In the current climate, first responders are expected to eliminate individual terrorists armed with automatic weapons in crowded city streets whilst also treating casualties in a response time that is synonymous with a military battlefield. The importance of simulation and training within police, fire and medical services is as paramount as within military and the means in which training is delivered is becoming increasing similar. The co-ordination and exchanging of methods and technologies is vital to ensure the best possible practises are utilised.
ITEC will feature a civil security zone on the show floor and there will also be a focused conference stream featuring both industry and civil speakers covering key themes that will engage an international audience.
