citizenAID™ is the initiative of four deeply 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.
Be prepared – with citizenAID™ YOU can save lives
