Join the Humans of 112 Campaign & have your voice heard !

Every February 11th, we celebrate 112 Day. This year, we want to highlight the fantasic work of everyone in the emergency field. And we’re inviting you to be involved !

Wherever you work in the emergency chain – whether you’re a paramedic, call taker, police officer, firefighter, coastguard, disaster planner, search & rescue pilot, CPR trainer, or any other emergency role – we want you to raise your voice and tell everyone what your job means to you.

Across Europe and beyond, emergency services professionals will be sharing photos and experiences on social media on 112 Day with #HumansOf112. The campaign will highlight all those who work every day to keep us safe… those too often kept in the background.

It’s very simple! On 112 Day (February 11th):

  • Take a photo of yourself (or you and your colleagues) in your work environment/uniform.
  • Upload it on social media with a short message about what your job means to you.
  • Don’t forget to use #HumansOf112 .
  • Tag our social media accounts so we can help share your message:
    • Twitter: @112_sos
    • Facebook: European Emergency Number 112
    • LinkedIn: EENA 112

 

We’ll also be sharing a selection of portraits on 112 Day from across Europe. Look out for the portrait from your country or field, and show your support for their work and motivation by sharing with your network.

Status of emergency services main topics in Europe

It has been 1 year since European emergency services marched to Brussels. Why? To contribute to the improvement of emergency services for all Europeans!

In October 2017, 100 EENA Members worked for 2 days during 12 workshops coming up with recommendations on the future of all emergency response essentials. They then met with the European Parliament to discuss the future of the 112 service. The aim? Help #makeEUsafe.

Following the event, EENA published a report detailing the workshops’ agreed next steps and committed to regular updates on the status of our actions. Today, we are happy to announce the publication of the second update of the report planning the roadmap for European emergency response.

Shaping the future of drones in emergencies

The potential advantages of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in emergencies are undeniable. But few emergency services organisations benefit from them in their everyday operations.

Worry not! The first edition of the “Drones & Public Safety Summit” promises to be a force of change.

The full-day free event will welcome emergency services, technology specialists, decision-makers and international experts to debate what the future holds – and how we get there.

What will you hear about?

In short, everything that matters! Don’t believe us? Here’s a sneak peek:

  • Join us to hear the latest updates on the European reality: what’s the status and where are they going? Don’t miss hearing the experiences of public safety professionals from the protagonists themselves.
  • Drones can be a great asset in the hands of emergency services. But people remain at the centre. Join us to learn how to help teams incorporate drones in their operations: from training to team management, emergency teams will never be the same.
  • How are emergency services using the European legislative framework? What challenges remain? Join us for discussions with decision-makers on what you should know and what’s to come.

What technology is out there to support drone operations? What are the latest trends and cutting edge solutions emergency services should know?When EENA and DJI partnered on Phase I of our European pilot test programme, you heard it in the New York Times. How about hearing about Phase II from the protagonists themselves?

EENA Members Workshop Update

Four months ago, European emergency services marched to Brussels! Why?

Around 100 EENA Members worked for 2 days on 12 workshops coming up with recommendations on all emergency response essentials. On day 3, they met with their Members of the European Parliament to discuss their concerns about the future of the 112 service. The events concluded with a pan-European march in honour victims of terrorism and in support of emergency services where rescuers, politicians, victims and citizens marched together and sent a strong message: we can #makeEUsafe.

Following the event, EENA published a report detailing the workshops’ next steps agreed by EENA Members. EENA committed to regular updates on the status. Today, we are happy to announce the publication of the first update of the “EENA Members Workshop” report.
