Citizen Aid

news

The Met Police at Holborn have asked that we draw your attention to citizenaid.org and the affiliated free app. This provides free advice, training and guidance on what to do in the event of a shooting, stabbing or bombing.

This is what CitizenAid says, "We believe that being prepared really matters. Those first 5 minutes count, they make the difference, you make the difference. You can save lives...'

With the right skills and knowledge YOU can deliver care to yourself , your friends and family and to the stranger caught up in a terrorist attack.

Simply download the free app from  Google Play, Apple App store or the Windows store.'

The citizenAID App will reduce the anxiety from difficult decision making in an unfamiliar situation. Follow the logical steps to do the right things in the right order. Stay safe and help us… to help you… to save lives.'"


citizenAID™ is the initiative of four highly experienced UK civilian and military clinicians working in collaboration with industry to improve public resilience.



When there is a shooting, stabbing or bomb explosion the initial priority will be public safety. This can delay the time before the emergency services are able to reach the injured. citizenAID™ enables the general public to be effective in these situations before the emergency services are available to provide professional medical support.

citizenAID™ is a simple, logical system of immediate actions. It is designed to guide the public to react safely, to pass effective messages to the emergency services, to prioritise the injured and to give life-saving first aid. This combination of effective organisation and immediate treatment will save lives.

citizenAID™ builds on tried and tested principles that have been used by individual soldiers to save life following comparable injuries sustained in the combat setting. citizenAID™ transfers the knowledge and skills to the public so that you can help yourself, your family and the wider community.

citizenAID™ is available to the whole public, with the fundamental resources being free to access and use. Additional optional training is available for those who work in jobs where there is perceived to be a higher threat or increased likelihood of encountering casualties from shooting, stabbing or bombing.
