What the hell has happened to our country when we have to start training members of the public to give medical aid to terror attack victims. The Independent claims members of the public will be trained to give immediate assistance to victims of terror attacks. Apparently a nationwide programme is being launched by the police, The training will concentrate on wounds caused by bombings, shootings and knife attacks.

One cannot argue of course with trying to help the victims, however why the hell have we allowed ourselves to be in this position. MASS immigration is the problem, in this country . It is clear for everyone to see that the overwhelming number of attacks are committed by people who are here as a result of recent or relatively recent immigration. Just look in the daily media, vicious violent crimes feature on a daily basis, the overwhelmingly majority not committed by people called John Smith or Peter Brown.

I have no objection to allowing a sensible number of well vetted people from other countries to live here, but we are now far far from that sensible approach........so are you going to start training for treating terrorist victims, and the victims of our social violence.

If first aid was included in every school's curriculum there would be no need for any special training. Quite why this is not the case is totally beyond me.

You are right KE. We have produced a country where bombs, stabbings and shootings are the norm, so it makes sense to teach kids how to plug the holes. :f-minus:

If people take St John's Ambulance first aid courses it makes sense for them to include training for knife, gunshot, corrosive substance and bomb injuries, so victims can receive some help before the emergency services arrive.

Whether such injuries result from a fight, aggravated robbery or Islamic, far-right or other political terror attack.

Remind me of what "far-right" terrorist attacks we have had in this country?

It's not all together new. When I was in the Civil Service. We didn't do first aid courses. We did the Para Medics courses(Including tri-age.) And Fire men's courses. There were bomb alerts. And it was up to you. To minimise casualties by forward planning. For instance. In a really secure building. It would be difficult to plant a bomb. So don't bother. Ring the authorities. With a bomb warning. Watch the evacuation. And see where the majority of people gather. Wait a couple of days. Plant a "Claymore Mine" etc. at that point. Ring about another bomb. Wait until the people have gathered. Explode the bomb. Simples. :smiles: So make sure your people, are clear of the crowd. Don't gather near a bin, or similar hiding place, etc. And that should help. Metal containers, should be changed for plastic. This will reduce shrapnel That's just a small part. Quick tip. People who make lots of noise, after an incident. Are usually the least injured. Take a quick look at the quit ones. People in shock. Give them something to do. After that keep yourself busy. People are looking for a leader. So get organized.
