Who we work with

We provide our Casualty simulation services to first aiders, paramedics, doctors, nurses, police, fire-fighters, armed forces, rescue teams, transport companies, universities, morticians, film & TV and local authorities whether staged indoors or in remote, industrial and hostile environments.

Acting

Making the incident feel as realistic as possible to all involved

Staging

We pride ourselves on the realism of our incident staging

Makeup

Professional makeup techniques add to the realism of the injury and training

Who use us?

Through the decades we have worked with every agency and countless private companies. From first Aid and pre-hospital medical training to medical and rescue training in remote, industrial and hostile environments.The organisations we work with are usually astonished at the effect on staff or students when they meet our ‘casualties’ in action. The realism of the makeup and acting is the nearest thing they will get to the real emergency. Some have told us that during an exercise they forget it is simulated and had the adrenalin rush that the actual situation creates. All of our services enable our clients to take training out of the classroom and provide opportunities for trainees to apply their knowledge and skills in realistic scenarios.

Why use us?

Handling realistic injuries is good training, for your staff learn to manage it productively. CU are experts in Casualty Simulation Services, choreographing realistic training scenarios whether indoors or for urban, remote, industrial or hostile environment scenarios with the ability to effectively provide feedback in debrief. Our services feature casualty simulation but can include professional quality moulages and casualty prosthetics as required.

Our members provide feedback during the incident by responding appropriately to careful or clumsy handling. In a debrief session afterwards they can offer invaluable tips in how your staff’s performance could have been improved.

So whether it’s rescue, communication skills, diagnosis, treatment, transport or hospital care, we are convinced that the reality we bring makes all the difference, and we think you will agree. All this fits neatly into our official charity aim: “To advance for the public benefit education and training in first aid, the treatment of illness, nursing, rescue, accident prevention, care in the community and similar activities, particularly through casualty simulation.” This means that we cannot provide our services for pure entertainment, or the shock-horror of Hallowe’en events.

Our members are covered by our Public Liability and Personal Accident insurance policies.

How much does it cost?

If you would like to use us, Headquarters or the Regional Director will help you find your nearest unit, whose managers will discuss your needs and the level of the donation we would request to cover our costs and support our charity. We need to know the date, times and venue of your training event, how many of us you need and an outline of what you require of our members.
