Safety equipment Case study – West Midlands FRS


FOCUS


IN 2016, Edesix became one of the first body worn camera providers to supply fire services in the UK. Following a successful trial at ten Birmingham fire stations that year, the company currently supplies firefighters in the West Midlands Fire and Rescue Service (WMFRS) with its VB-300 series of the cameras – its first generation of WiFi enabled VideoBadges. WMFRS is also trialling the company’s X-100 side mountable, tactical head camera, which is connected to the VB-300. The X-100 offers automatic rotation of footage, which means that it can be worn on either side of the head without requiring user configuration to rotate footage. It is connected to a VB-300 with a convenient two part cable for easy removal, which allows a VB-300 to be worn under a uniform or on a belt pocket. Watch commanders attending call


outs throughout the West Midlands are now equipped with VideoBadges to help share best practice techniques and complement firefighter training, ultimately improving the service’s operations well into the future. In addition, Edesix recently won the


contract to supply body worn cameras to Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service, prompting Neil Gordon, a spokesperson for that fire and rescue service, to comment:


‘The introduction of body worn video is solely for the development of our service, enhancing our already high standard [of] incident decision making to protect life and property.’ Firefighters wear this particular range to audit and improve response performance, as VideoBadges are equipped with security features to preserve the confidentiality of any sensitive footage, even if the device is lost, stolen or damaged. They are unobtrusive and lightweight, as well as being attachable to uniforms and helmets using a variety of mounting options
