We're sure many of you are familiar with our Business Protection team who work to keep us all safe, no matter the time or place. But, how many of you really know what goes on behind the scenes? We caught up with the team to find out just that!
Did you know from the moment you make the call to Business Protection team to them arriving it takes on average four minutes, no matter where on site you may be. This isn't something that has happened overnight, it has taken years of extensive training. From dealing with fires to medical emergencies the team just about cover it all.
The call comes through to the emergency line control room which is then allocated to one of the four core response teams. Once all details are received the team set into action ready to take on whatever emergency they may be faced with.
Each shift, the core teams must complete at least one hour of training which will be based around different scenarios that they may come into contact with. They will also each complete annual training twice a year where they are put through their paces around fire safety, medical response and much more. Did you know that each of the Business Protection responders are trained to FREC 3(First Response Emergency Care), the same level as an ambulance technician!
