Course Overview:

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.

Following the launch of their free pocket guide and smart phone app, a need was identified for high quality classroom based learning and First on Scene is proud to offer the brand new Ofqual regulated ‘Level 2 Award in citizenAID (RQF)’ qualification.

This training 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.

The course links practical training sessions to the published citizenAID™ advice. Topics covered include:

  • 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’.


Learners are assessed whilst demonstrating practical skills in each section of the course.
