Summary – Attending Excalibur’s Responding to a Terrorist or Violent criminal incident Including Critical Injury Treatment Awareness (CITA) is a proactive step towards business, personal and community safety. Knowledge about threats faced, attack methodologies, injuries, and life-saving interventions can make a substantial difference during a crisis. Empowered with this education, individuals are better prepared to respond effectively to terrorist incidents, potentially saving lives and contributing to the overall resilience and safety of their communities in an increasingly complex and uncertain world.

In addition, it shows investment in staff by giving them a life skill they can use either while at work or out with their family and loved ones.
When an incident occurs, the emergency services will not be present immediately and anyone seriously injured will need assistance. This course will equip participants to fill the care gap until the emergency services arrive.

The Manchester Arena Inquiry, into the Ariana Grande Terrorist Attack of May 2017, highlighted that there will be a period of time whereby those caught up in such an incident will be on their own, until the emergency services (First Responders) arrive. The gap between the incident and the emergency services arriving was identified as the care gap.

Those persons caught up in the incident will become as a default “Zero” responders and can make a difference to those injured until the First Responders arrive by applying some easy taught lifesaving interventions.
