Control measure

Multi- agency co-location

Control measure knowledge

When commanders are co-located, they can perform the functions of command, control and co-ordination face to face. This allows the establishment of jointly agreed objectives and a co-ordinated plan.

The benefits of co-location apply equally at all levels of command.

Strategic actions

Fire and rescue services should:
  • Embed JESIP Principles within policy, procedure, training, awareness and exercising for all levels of response staff

Tactical actions

At the strategic co-ordinating group, commanders should:
  • Liaise with tactical incident commanders as soon as possible and confirm the established Forward Command Post (FCP)
