The London Emergency Services Liaison Panel

Major Incident Procedure Manual

Welcome to the ninth edition of the Major Incident Procedure Manual published in 2015 by the Metropolitan Police on behalf of the London Emergency Services Liaison Panel.

The London Emergency Services Liaison Panel (LESLP) was formed in 1973 and consists of representatives from the Metropolitan Police Service, City of London Police, British Transport Police, the London Fire Brigade, the London Ambulance Service, and local authorities. The Port of London Authority (PLA), Marine Coastguard, RAF, Military and voluntary sector are also represented.

The 'Major Incident Procedure Manual' provides summaries of the responses and responsibilities of each of the emergency services at a major incident in London, as well as an outline of the support role offered by local authorities.

The London Emergency Services Liaison Panel (LESLP) recognises that every major incident is different and has its own unique features. It is designed to offer a framework within which those who are responsible for the successful resolution of the incident are able to work together with maximum efficiency.
