ACT has been developed as a guide to surviving the cause and effects
of an emergency whether it’s general accidents, the effects of mother nature or
as a result of human conflicts such as terrorism or crime.

ACT is a mindset and a skill set, as such, it will develop with practice to
the point becomes non-intrusive to normal life.




To empower the public with the knowledge, skills and equipment
to survive a threat and it’s effects




1. Develop the RESPONSE-ABILITY to ACT in the time-frame between the
onset of an emergency and the arrival of professional help.

2. Prepare the Public in a manner that reduces the fear
surrounding the risks of harmful events occurring.

3. Evolving the ACT mindset so people can react
effectively in a time of need.

4. Giving the public the IMMEDIATE ACTIONS required
to survive the cause of such events.

5. Giving the public the COMMUNICATE skills to observe the environment
form choices and act, interact with others and activate help.

6. Giving the public lifesaving EXTENDED ACTIONS or TREAT
skills to address the effects of harm until help arrives.



Surviving the threat is a dynamic process based on imperfect information, immediate need and implicit guidance.
Basically you don't need to know the specifics, just enough to act quickly and move away from the threat.

An easy saying to guide this immediate action is
"Absence of normal - Presence of abnormal"

From a "baseline" of normality, either known or anticipated, such as normality in the home, office, school etc.


Run:
Try to escape, use any route out of a building, don't rely on signed escape routes, avoid crowds and
use your surroundings to conceal movement. If escape is impossible aim for an area of hard cover.

Hide:
Once in hard cover secure doors, close curtains, turn off lights, barricade doors with furniture and
move out of sight behind a hard wall. Keep quiet and silence phones.

Defend:
If you cannot escape or find cover, or the attacker confronts you, then aim
to disorientate them so you can RUN - HIDE.




Situational AWARENESS matters, prior to and during an event. It is a mix of observing your surroundings
for possible threats and solutions such as escape routes and areas of cover.

This simple saying can act as a guide and can even help overcome the fear when surprised:

"What if? What then?" 

What if there is an attack in the street ahead? I can move into the store to my left etc.


Guide
Guide others to act during an event, direct them to escape or cover,
many will freeze, some will flee or flock (follow the crowd with no real direction).
Working together can help you share situational awareness as events
evolve and you focus on tasks such as treating the injured or
barricading an area of cover.

Tell
Tell the Emergency Services (silence phone first). Inform them of the situation and location.
During an event be brief.

If you observe any suspicious activities and are safe,
inform the Police of your concerns, it may prevent an attack.

When responders arrive their primary focus will be
to deal with the threat, obey their instructions,
show open hands and try not to distract them.
Further responders will arrive and help you.





The main preventative cause of traumatic death is Massive Blood Loss. Such loss can lead to death in 3-5 minutes.

Time is crucial for the injured to survive, and also for yourself as the means to STOP BLEEDING can be done
quickly so you can go back to observing for further threats and options as events evolve.

Modern commercial tourniquets are evidence-based and safe, although they will hurt when applied.
Place high and tight on the affected limb, responders will assess and continue care.


Other preventative causes of traumatic death are:


Airway Obstruction
Place the unresponsive casualty in the recovery position so they can maintain their airway and fluids can drain away.

Chest Trauma
Penetrating injuries to the chest, back, tummy, or neck area should be assessed and sealed, sit the casualty comfortably in
a position best for them to breath. Such injuries and treatments are best left until the area is as safe as you can judge it too be.






ACT-PAK's (Personal Aid Kit's) are vacuum sealed, compact trauma kits created

ACT-multiPAK's should be placed throughout public spaces including
but not limited to offices, shopping centres and mass gathering events.
They should be situated in numerous, easy-to-grab locations
for easy-access in the event of an emergency.

When choosing locations for ACT-multiPAK's, identify your risks and assess
if access could be limited in the event of an emergency.
For example, if you are barricaded in an office or room, could you access
your ACT-multiPAK and life-saving bleeding equipment if it was
only situated in the corridor?







The ACT-Tourniquet is a compact and affordable arterial tourniquet that provides a quick and effective solution
to stop massive limb bleeding and save lives in an emergency.

The applications is as simple as Apply, Compress and Tuck.



Packed pre-looped for easy self-application, the loop can be separated
to attach the tourniquet around a leg or an entrapped limb.

Manufactured from high-visibility orange elastic and military-grade
webbing materials, the ACT-Tourniquet allows for circumferential pressure
that occludes blood flow to the affected limb from the first pull.



As well as learning the ACT system it is important to have the appropriate,
purpose-built kit to be able to 'TREAT'.
 The environment is challenging
enough without having to improvise solutions 
with the focus and time required
distracting you from changing events.

The range of ACT equipment includes individual carry Personal Aid Kit's (PAK's),
multiPAK's designed for mass casualty response within communities as well as
the ACT-Tourniquet, a simple and intuitive 'pull and stretch' tourniquet
for self-application or for other casualties.
