Level 2 Award in citizenAID

Would you know how to react in a stabbing, shooting or bomb attack?

CitizenAID™ is a UK based initiative designed to improve public resilience in the event of a deliberate multiple casualty incident.

Established by some of the UK’s most senior medical and military professionals, citizenAID trains members of the public in the “Run, Hide, Tell, Treat” procedure, teaching vital skills on how to react and how best to help each other in the event of a shooting, stabbing or bomb attack.

Ofqual Regulated

Valid for 3 years

The course is of value to all members of the public, however it is particularly important for those who work in environments where the risk of a deliberate multiple casualty attack should be considered. These environments could include: airports, train and bus stations, schools, colleges, shopping malls, galleries, museums, theatres, arenas, festivals and public events.

What does this course cover?

  • Actions to take in the event of an active shooter or knife attack
    Dealing with a suspect or exploded bomb
    Communication with emergency services
    ● Triage of multiple casualties
    Treatment of severe external bleeding
    Managing unresponsive casualties

Whilst the risk of being involved in a shooting, stabbing or bomb attack is low, recent events show that citizens are best equipped to protect themselves and save lives when they are trained in how to react and are confident giving first aid.

‘Be prepared, not scared’.
