Emergency Management-Editorial

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial (journal)


The article provides an editorial perspective and quick summary, context and background for the papers published in volume, three, issue one of International Journal of Emergency Services. They primarily examine the three main blue light emergency services, and also cover four different international contexts and perspectives. There are three contributions relating to the individual services of the police, health and fire, and rescue services, which are complemented by two papers that examine the inter-relationships and interoperability between the emergency services themselves and the boundaries and inter-relationship between the emergency services and the public at emergency incidents. Intriguingly these latter two papers both originate from Sweden while the other contributions originate from Australia, the UK, and the USA. However what is reassuringly consistent and commendable about all five of the studies we publish in this issue is the clear identification and articulation of the situational and other limitations to each of the authors’ papers
