Future Firefighting

Future Firefighting looked at how the Service could move forward using innovation, resource research and a reinvention of firefighting techniques and procedures to meet the constantly changing demands of the future.

In recent years there have been huge advances in technology and significant changes in building construction – yet despite these developments GMFRS has, until recently, maintained a relatively traditional approach to firefighting techniques and equipment.

The Service has embraced modern technology and procedures to do things quicker, safer and with less impact on the environment.

Below is a video which shows some of the new Future Firefighting equipment and techniques being used at a series of live demonstrations in January 2015.
