Tony was appointed as Chair of the Board of Directors of the Emergency Planning Society (EPS), in February 2015. The EPS is the UK-based professional association for over 1,200 members who work in the resilience and emergency response sector. It is an independent, non-party political body that draws upon the expertise of its multi-disciplinary membership to provide independent, expert advice to key decision-making bodies, including government departments and the UK Parliament. At membership level, it provides a knowledge source for the emergency planning community and a forum to discuss issues that can lead to the enhancement of the profession in the public, private and voluntary sectors.
He regularly travels abroad, and between 2009 and 2014 lived in the Middle East where he worked on a major critical national infrastructure security risk management project, and subsequently held the position of quality manager for a large private hospital group.
His emergency management and resilience background is embedded in the UK’s British Transport Police, UK government and the British Red Cross. He held command roles as a superintendent in the British Transport Police, with experience at many of the UK’s major train crashes, including the 1988 Clapham Junction train crash and the 1999 Ladbroke Grove train crash, and was a member of the Police Major Disaster Advisory Team for 10 years.
Tony has a master’s degree in civil emergency management and a law degree. He lives in Weston-super-Mare in Somerset, UK.
