£70pp

QA Level 2 Award

Invaluable guidance and preparation to help in the event of a terrorist attack

Objective

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.
