Dave Wrigley

ESMCP Coordinator, West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service

Dave joined the fire service as a Fire Control Operator in late 1980. During his time in control he fulfilled a wide range of watch-based roles and several specialist roles including Training Manager and Systems Manager.

A move from Control into the West Yorkshire Firelink and FireControl delivery team lead Dave into more project-based roles including Command Support Software, Command Room, and New Control Systems.

A stint in eLearning and Command Training preceded a move into the newly created role as Operational Communications Officer and his current involvement with the WYFRS ESMCP project and as a Communications Tactical Advisor.

Within West Yorkshire, Dave along with other 3ES colleagues, are looking at testing the Emergency Service Network (ESN) and Critical Operational Locations (COLs), potentially using ‘What 3 Words’ as a means of identifying and recording the handheld testing locations used.
