IJES 8,1 We are delighted to write this editorial for the first issue of Volume 8. In this issue, the International Journal of Emergency Services (IJES) is again publishing six original articles that explore the themes of psychological screening of the emergency services responders, training and evaluation in the fire services, the issue of CPR training for the paramedics and firefighters, the issue of austerity and use of Lean and Six Sigma techniques in policing. These papers seek to close the information gap by making significant contributions to the emergency management literature and the way we view the role of emergency management practitioners. The first article, “The role of psychological screening for emergency service responders” by Noreen Tehrani and Ian Hesketh examines the role that psychological screening and surveillance can play in improving the delivery of psychological support to emergency service responders (ESRs) at the time of increasing demands and complexity across the world.
