Helping you provide emergency care in high-risk environments.

Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear (CBRN).

The release of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear or Explosive materials caused by human error, nature or technological failure, are commonly referred to as Hazardous Materials (HAZMAT) events. Incidents involving similar releases but where the intent is criminal or terrorist in nature, then the term CBRNe is used. The 625 provides a range of bespoke Chemical, Biological Radiological Nuclear and Explosive (CBRNe) and Hazardous Materials (Hazmat) education programs to meet the needs of commercial, humanitarian, emergency service and government organisations.

Firearms and Explosive Threat

Marauding Terrorist Firearms Attacks (MTFA) are indiscriminate and commonly result in large numbers of individuals, across the entire demographic spectrum, receiving injuries. Responding bystanders, medical and rescue personnel are often non-combatant, civilian people who have experienced little or no, experience of firearms and explosives related incidents. The 625 provide a range of educational programs which enable civilian responders to provide safe and effective life-saving immediate care during and after the initial event.

Bystander Response – Those who are in close proximity to the event with basic training will be able to provide immediate care which will save lives. Training is everything at this level.

  • Immediate care
  • Prolonged care
  • Escape, evasion and evacuation

Company and Corporate Response – Organisations that, as part of their business, bring group of people together must be able to provide a response that is effective and efficient in the event of an MTFA incident. The 625 is able to provide training and education that will save lives.

  • Holiday resorts
  • Transport hubs
  • Sporting events
  • Music and arts events

Emergency Services Response – Emergency services organisations are currently experiencing a long-term and increasing problem in relation to MTFA. The 625 provides education programs for responders and commanders.

  • Ambulance and pre-hospital care
  • Fire and rescue service
  • Police Service
  • International aid agencies
  • Voluntary aid societies

Hospital Response – Hospitals unfortunately, are no longer considered to be safe havens.  The 625 provide education and training programs for hospital and care facilities which maximises survivability and minimises loss in the event of MTFA incidents.

  • Effective cover and refuge
  • Escape and evasion
  • Evacuation
