Dan Cartwright

Mr. Dan CartwrightDeputy Assistant Commissioner, National Fire Chiefs Council, National Deputy CBRN(e) Strategic Lead

Seconded from London Fire Brigade, Dan is responsible for establishing and maintaining strategic relationships with government, blue-light and military partners to ensure the Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) contributes to delivering an effective, flexible, agile, and proportionate national multi-agency CBRN(e) response.

With experience of over 30 years in the fire service, Dan has provided representation at political, strategic, and operational level, delivering a coordination and liaison role to ensure that the views of the FRS are represented within these arenas. This has included regular liaison and meetings with MP’s and seniors in government, FRS, police, ambulance, military, as well as other leaders on the international stage to understand emerging CBRN(e) threats, risks, and vulnerabilities.

Dan has strived to develop the national CBRN(e) position as an exemplar of Joint Emergency Service Interoperability Principals (JESIP), making multi-agency collaboration core to the role and the foundation on which the success of the capability has been built.
