Do you have a safety net?

Do you have a safety net?

As an individual, security, facilities or company leader, how prepared are you and your staff to deal with a catastrophic incident where life could ebb away in around three minutes? Do you have a safety net?

Would you or they be able to react confidently and effectively prior to or during the aftermath of such an event?

Do you feel that proper training and Awareness would give you, your employees and business an edge in should a life-threatening catastrophe occur?

Recent Events

Consider recent actions by persons with very hostile intentions in the UK, Europe and other world nations, how many lives could have been saved if intervention by those at the scene and prior to the emergency services arriving and acting? It will take around 7 – 8 minutes for the emergency services to arrive and they may not be allowed to access the scene until given the “all-clear” by the security services. 

Creating an environment that protects itself, through people first

Our Critical Incident Management and Awareness Training (CIMAT) programs have been designed to enable people to both help prevent through awareness and to deal with the outcomes should a catastrophic incident occur. 

What is ERT Training?

Our Emergency Response Team (ERT) Training program is a major product of our CIMAT program and is directed at individuals within organisations who are part of an Emergency Response Team (ERT), who would generally consist of Security, Fire Marshals and First Aiders and members of the Crisis Management Team. It also allows room to enable general employees who are not part of an ERT to support and or react effectively and confidently to a critical incident.

Who is ERT training for?

This training is suitable for members of a crisis management team and its support teams (Security, Facilities, First Responders (First Aiders). 

It’s also geared to security companies as they are usually on the front-line as seen in recent news (London Bridge and Borough Market, Manchester). Sadly they didn’t have the equipment or training to deal with catastrophic injuries. We believe that our training would give security companies whose Guards and Door Supervisors a great advantage in the marketplace.

I have First Aiders, why do I need an ERT?

We must realise that normal First Aid training would not give the knowledge or confidence to anyone who will have to deal with such horrific and life-threatening injuries, particularly catastrophic bleeding where there are only minutes to react before the casualty dies. We believe that our training will drastically enhance first aid skills

What’s the training for?

Its purpose is to teach teams and individuals how to quickly, confidently and effectively to provide life-saving skills to casualties with catastrophic injuries in the event of a critical incident, or the aftermath of a terrorist attack, where injuries sustained would/could include (or a multiple of all): 

  • Knife Attack (KA)
  • Active Shooter (AS)
  • IED (Bomb blast injuries – amputations, burns, catastrophic bleeding etc)
  • PBIED (Person-Borne Improvised Explosive Device)
  • Aggressive Vehicle As Weapon (AVAW)
  • Acid/Corrosive substance

How big can a class be?

Our Emergency Response Team (ERT) training will cater for a maximum of 3 cohorts over a two-day intensive program, allowing a maximum of 36 learners (12 learners per cohort). The venue is located in West London, near Uxbridge, with very easy access by road and London Underground (3 minutes walk from the station)

Pre-requisites 

It is important that learners have a current First Aid qualification as a pre-requisite to undertaking the program and that they should still have good knowledge and skills. The importance of basic first aid is based on the advanced levels of learning involved in our course.

Skill Top-Ups

We offer pre-ERT course refreshers for those that need to “pep-up” their skills before undertaking our ERT course and we also offer Ofqual regulated First Aid at Work (FAW 3-day), Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW 1-day) for those who have no basic first aid training

ERT includes:

First, remember, every story should have a beginning, a middle and an end, we’ll get you through this with instruction on triage, what you do for your casualty and handover to the emergency services
