Threat Response Training on the Rise in Australia

Australia is not immune to the threat of terror and other threat-related emergencies. In the past two years, we have witnessed an increasing number of significant threat incidents. Events such as the Lindt cafe siege in Sydney; the Bourke St Mall attack earlier this year in Melbourne, highlight to us all that an incident could occur at any time, at any place and for any reason.

Building owners, managers and tenants, at increasing rates are seeking professional training in preparedness for a potential threat. This week, in the Daily Telegraph our Group CEO, David Rafter discusses how First 5 Minutes has had a major increase in inquiries from Business and Government, in the past two years. Concerned employers want to prepare and equip their staff with the knowledge on how to evade an active threat, should an event arise.

At First 5 Minutes, we deliver effective planning and response procedures training, providing people with the skills to quickly assess a threat situation and determine the safest and most effective course of action.

Do you want to learn how to deal with various types of terror attacks, as well as what to expect and how to respond to police recovery teams? The First 5 Minutes Team are available to provide advice and further discussion. Being prepared can make all the difference.
