“I didn’t think it would be difficult.” – The manager of the fire service control room thought that contacting the GMP’s force duty officer would be the right thing to do.
Jenin Carden, the operations manager at Northwest Fire Control, who returned to the control room from home after receiving reports of the attack, resumed her evidence Tuesday.
Officers and staff responsible for the ‘command and control’ of emergency resource acquisition are currently providing evidence in this part of the inquiry.
She was the ‘only point of contact’ for the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service and received MTFA training – praising the terrorist firearms attack.
“It always tells a blue man,” she says of the incident reported by the MTFA, which happened at night because firefighters were not immediately deployed.
NILO is the liaison officer for the National International Agency.
Ms Cardin says it was a different way of thinking for control room staff, who have always been traditionally told to mobilize firefighters together.
She says all the team leaders in the control room were trained in blue.
Ms Carden said the fire service would not be called to the scene of the shooting in Greater Manchester as usual.
The fire service could not reach the force duty officer of NILO, Andy Berry, GMP.
Ms Cardin says that at the time, she did not know that there was a danger that the FDO might be “overwhelmed”, but she knew that in the event of an MTFA report, Nelo would have to call the FDO. Will
“I didn’t think it would be difficult [to contact the FDO], “She says.
“We [control room staff] Didn’t really contact the FDO.
“I didn’t realize there was a problem.”
She says that when she got to know the team leaders, she “wanted more training and wished they had more time to train.”
“It was something that was getting up,” she tells Inquiry.
