Who are UK Emergency Support Services
UK Emergency Support Services (UKESS) is a registered ‘Not for Profit’ organisation with wholly charitable purposes. The organisation is headed up by the founder and Managing Director Mark Hills and has been in development since February 2017, officially launching in June 2018.
The organisation has been set up with its principle aim to provide reliable and effective practical aid and support to Front Line Emergency Services, Local Authorities, Communities and Response organisations during Public and National Emergencies, Major Incidents, Severe Weather Incidents and National Crisis. The Organisation also aims to aid in public education of safety and first aid campaign.
Our vision is to have Response Teams based across the country, able to deploy a fully equipped response team to developing situations, anywhere in the UK, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The purpose of the response teams is to provide coordinated teams of multi-disciplined volunteers that can provide support where needed; they are backed further by an in house Welfare Team who provide support to the volunteers both during and post operational deployment. The Organisation does not exist to provide support services that are already being provided by other volunteer services, but to compliment such agencies by adding further resources and filling gaps where needed.
Operational Deployments can include, but are not limited to Community Flood Preparation Support, Post Flood Recovery Support, Severe Weather Incident Support, General Practical Support and Assistance to the Emergency Services including staffing perimeter cordons and welfare support units, Welfare Support to members of the public during serious incidents.
Our members are drawn from all walks of life who have a wide range of backgrounds and skill sets with a common attribute shared by every one of them; the desire, passion and resolve to help victims of disasters and major incidents in the UK.
