This is a course designed specifically for the needs of frontline workers within the Fire Service and Emergency Medical Services. Our goal is to impart the understanding and skills necessary to: Carefully Assess, Recognize, Deal with and Survive violent situations within a given legal framework. The course will teach students a variety of skills, such as engaging in “witness-obvious” behavior and documenting pertinent information in an event of a situation.

Participants will learn a variety of techniques to better prepare themselves for short-term stress reactions and how to retain professional comportment under duress.

Students will explore a variety of behaviors and situations to better assess and recognize unusual or possibly threatening situations.

Students will explore a variety of behaviors to better assess and deal with patients suffering from mental illness or patients who may be intoxicated.

One of the tools in this course is the "C.A.R.D.S loop", where students will learn about early threat recognition, scene evaluations, approach techniques, entering structures, self-defence, strategical placements, cover and concealment, de-escalation techniques, advanced communication skills, mental models, threat removal and escapes and evasions.

Finally, we will impart the tools necessary for front-line workers to better process and deal with the post emotional effects of violence or trauma experienced or witnessed at a scene.
