The JESIP awareness package is designed to provide information about JESIP specifically for Category 1 and 2 responders and appropriate partner organisations such as the military and the voluntary sector. The JESIP 16-minute training video shows how the response to an incident can be coordinated from the moment the call is received in a control room, through to responders arriving.  It focuses on delivering a coordinated multi-agency response through the application of JESIP, with each stage clearly shown.
