Could you become a Counter-Terrorism Citizen?

Dec 12, 2019

2019 has seen an abundance of deliberate attacks and mass casualty incidents that show no signs of abating.

Over the past three years TyTek has educated, equipped and empowered bystanders (also known as zero responders) to save lives in these situations, particularly in a lockdown situation where first responders are unable to treat trauma victims until the scene has been secured.

Our award-winning equipment is as relevant as a fire extinguisher or an AED and emergency and military medicine experts recommend that public venues install bleeding control kit to treat at least 20 victims.

Allied to this essential equipment, an award-winning counter terrorism training course has been made available to the public for the first time and police want people to get involved. The ACT Awareness eLearning package was previously only available to staff working in crowded places, however, Counter Terrorism officers and Security experts have developed the training course for anyone who wants to help their communities in this next level of first aid training

What is the ACT Awareness Course?

The online course educates participants on what to do in the event of a mass casualty incident. Each stage has been developed by industry experts, the first learning module is ‘Introduction to Terrorism’ – This will help the learner gain an understanding of the meaning behind ‘terrorism’ and how to spot signs of suspicious behavior. 

Unfortunately, the national threat in the UK still remains as ‘Substantial’ – Meaning an attack is likely – so giving everyone the chance to be extra eyes and ears for police and security teams could help to keep communities safe.
