PPE continues to present a huge challenge, and a national request is being made of organisations or others able to help with making PPE such as visors and gowns for our frontline workers.

Training scheme to help prevent terror attacks

Posted by LRF Manager

The National Coordinator recommends that businesses and organisations use the ACT e Learning package in order to enable your staff to prevent and respond to a terrorist attack should one take place.

Action Counters Terrorism (ACT). It is an innovative 45-minute training scheme that could help prevent terror attacks and it covers how to spot the signs of suspicious behaviour and what to do if an attack should take place.

Free to use, the package can be divided into short sections to suit business needs and it takes just three quarters of an hour to complete – 45 vital minutes that could save lives.

The ACT 2018 campaign was implemented to reinforce one particular message – that communities defeat terrorism. We encourage businesses to apply for registration and make us of this free resource.
