Our Experience With Australian Federal Police
- We have proved tailored confined space rescue training and breathing apparatus training to the AFP for almost 4 years
- FSA has provided advanced search and rescue training and casualty handling training for the AFP in the ACT
Almost 4 years ago, FSA was asked to provide tailored confined space rescue and breathing apparatus training to the AFP in the ACT. These AFP members (from both the bomb squad and the special service response group) could be required to enter confined spaces such as drains, pipes and other locations to search for people or other items.
The training required the personnel to wear their bomb suits and breathing apparatus whilst searching confined spaces for people or explosives. The FSA trainers tailored a confined space training course that focused on searching these confined spaces whilst in restricted visibility.
The FSA confined space training also focused on the importance of casualty handling and many scenarios were run that included strapping patients into stretchers and vertically lifting them from confined spaces. We continue to be invited back as we tailor the confined space training directly to the requirements of the AFP and we send consistent trainers every time.
