Citizen Aid is aimed at anyone who has concerns about being involved in a major incident whether gun, knife or terrorism related and whether you work in a high risk environment or just want to be prepared.

It is suitable for anyone but there are some floor exercises involved so you do need to be able to kneel down.

The course deals directly with major, life threatening injuries and is quite graphic including pictures and scenarios that may well be very upsetting. We do not consider it suitable for people under 18 years of age

It is not a substitute for a workplace First Aid course.

The course covers:

Keeping safe in an emergency
Run, Hide, Tell
Emergency Services response
Actions when faced with

Knife attack
Gun attack

Immediate, life saving steps to take
Hand over to Emergency Services


Prices on Eventbrite are VAT inclusive
