What is

The Joint Emergency Services Interoperability Programme (JESIP) was established in 2012 to address the recommendations and findings from a number of major incident reports...

Principles for joint working

Commanders arriving at the scene take too long or don’t make contact with commanders from the others services. This leads to poor information sharing, lack of communication and no joint understanding of the unfolding emergency. Learn More

JOINT decision model

The overarching aim or purpose for using the JDM is common to all those involved in emergency response. They are the words in the centre of the JDM, All commander and responder staff should remind themselves of the importance of this purpose when responding to a multi-agency incident and applying JESIP.

In the initial stages, pass information between emergency responders and Control Rooms using the METHANE mnemonic. METHANE is now the recognised common model for passing incident information between services and their control rooms. Learn More

The official Jesip App

About the app

The JESIP App is a living Aide Memoire!
It provides those working in emergency response with a quick way to access essential information including the JESIP Principles, Joint Decision Model, generate a METHANE report and much more.

How will it help

The JESIP App will allow many more people working in emergency response to understand and apply JESIP, improving the multi-agency response the public expect and deserve. It will help embed JESIP so its use becomes business-as-usual resulting in emergency response staff achieving the JESIP aim “working together – saving lives”.


The JESIP App is a useful tool for anyone working in emergency response, this includes those who assist and support emergency responders.


The JESIP App has been developed for both Apple and Android devices and is available FREE from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
