Lead for Emergency Planning Training and CBRN , Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust

Following a 30 year career in the London Fire Brigade where I was the initial Borough Fire Commander for Greenwich and one of the first Inter-agency Liaison officers (ILO) in the country (ILO’s are a cadre of trained officers providing a response to special operations including CBRN) I led the team during my final years in the service. On leaving the Fire Brigade I joined Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust as an emergency planning trainer and soon after also took the lead on CBRN response. Over the last 11 years in addition to providing emergency planning training and the CBRN expertise at the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust I have also been involved with the development of the initial operational response (IOR) training film for the NHS. As part of my role within emergency planning I have assisted in the development of several emergency plans and supported in response to the Major Incidents including Westminster and London bridge attacks, Parsons Green and Grenfell Tower fire.
