Course Description

This is a specialist course combining :

  • Threat Assessment and Evasion
  • Emergency First Aid
  • Catastrophic Injury Management


Why is this course important?

This is indeed a very different world we live in. I never would have thought that when I left the Armed Forces after 22 years of operational service in many war zones such as Afghanistan, Iraq and Bosnia that i would be teaching this vital training to civilians in every day life.

Although the chances of being caught up in an incident is small, the likelihood of such an incident occurring in the UK is escalating, so the advice from Brigadier Tim Hodgetts and Prof Sir Keith Porter (co-developers of the app CitizenAID) along with the UK security services say it is a good idea for people to have a plan and the knowledge and skills to help each other in the event of a terrorist attack.

In such a situation, there are usually multiple casualties which puts huge pressure on the emergency services, so everyone can help - or even save lives.

What you will learn?

The course includes instructions on how to stay as safe as possible from the outset of a terrorist attack through the procedure of dealing with personal injury or casualties with life threatening catastrophic injuries.

It guides people through first aid procedures such as packing, putting pressure on and elevating a wound, and how to improvise or use specialist life saving equipment such as tourniquets and Israeli bandages.

The programme also explains how to prioritise those who need treatment first and what to tell the emergency services once they arrive.

You could save lives.
