The First Response Team (UK) Limited was set up in July 2004 by David Smith.
David, an operational fire-fighter with almost 20 years front line experience saw an opportunity to provide realistic, enthusiastic and credible training into a market that had become tired of repetitive, old school style training from companies whose instructors had little or no actual experience of dealing with medical emergencies.
David put together a unique team of instructors hand picked from the emergency services. All were selected for their outstanding teaching ability, sense of humour and operational experience.
Doctors, Paramedics, Nurses and Fire-fighters then became the instructors on which the First Response Team has built its reputation.
On the 1st October 2013, the HSE ceased being the accrediting body of all First Aid training companies in the UK.
The First Response Team is now accredited to "Qualsafe Awards" which is an Ofqual recognised Awarding Organisation, established by experts in the first aid training industry.
The company provides first aid and medical training for numerous individuals, groups and companies but also has the regular contracts to provide training to the staff of West Yorkshire Playhouse, Hallmark Cards and Findel PLC.
In line with customer demand the company now provides full Health and Safety training and from September 2006 in accordance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, began to provide Fire Safety Risk Assessments to companies in order for them to comply with the Order.
Once again the company only uses fire training specialists who are employed within the British Fire Service and who are all fully conversant with current fire legislation and the Regulatory Reform Order.
The company has Public Liability, Professional Indemnity, and Malpractice Insurance provided by Zurich and all its instructors and assessors have the qualifications required by the Health and Safety Executive to carry out their role in training or assessing.
