Area Manager Adrian Murphy of West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service is giving a presentation entitled ‘The Shoreham Air Disaster’.


Adrian Murphy is currently responsible for strategic risk and innovation programmes within West Sussex FRS, and will be speaking on the Shoreham Air Disaster at the NFCCs 2017 Command and Control Conference in Leeds on the 25th and 26th September. 

At the time of the Shoreham Air Disaster Adrian Murphy was the chief operations officer in the strategic command during the incident and during the subsequent days and weeks that the incident lasted. In his presentation Adrian Murphy will initially discuss the factors on the day leading to the crash, the initial fire service response and firefighting tactics and the impact the topography had on the incident response and the subsequent effects on Critical National Infrastructure.

Adrian will then discuss the Local Resilience Forum response, the implementation of JESIP, the media liaison required for the incident and the impact on the community during the incident. Adrian will then focus on the criminal and other investigations, including liaison with the Air Accident Investigation Branch, the Coroners role and Disaster Victim Identification. The final part of the presentation will then discuss the long term community recovery, the long term PTSD in responders and the changes to event preplanning and ops plans that have been implemented since the incident.
