Our Story:

Winner – 2020 Prime Minister’s Veterans’ Employment Awards – Small Business Category

In 2013 Emergency Australia was established, with the objective of combining the unique skills and experiences of military veterans, with civilian emergency service personnel. By combining these skills, experiences and geographic locations, a truly unique and holistic service could be delivered across the Asia pacific region.

Our focus is to provide Training  and Emergency solutions across 3 key areas: training, medical support and WHS.

High Fidelity Training:

 

As the saying goes, “train hard, fight easy” we believe through exposure, realism and a hands on approach to training, confidence can be instilled to respond in a variety of contexts. We use the lessons learnt from our unique backgrounds to contextualise training for maximum engagement and knowledge retention.

The team at Emergency Australia is excited to announce the launch of our High-Fidelity Training and Simulation Centre, right here in Brisbane.

The unique capabilities of this facility offer enhanced training opportunities for emergency, medical professionals, the military, law enforcement and first responders across the private and government sector.

Key Features:

The High-Fidelity Training and Simulation Centre is a two-story facility featuring a 360-degree augmented reality environment, as well as a control room, debriefing room and reception area.

The 360-degree augmented reality environment is unique in that it provides complete audiovisual immersion for the student in the training simulation. This training environment can be designed to replicate urban or remote settings, for example a mine, a hospital, a rural car crash or a military environment, depending on your professional requirements.

In addition to the audiovisual immersion, students train on state-of-the art patient simulators including  Iaerdals Simman 3G. These simulators provide for a realistic training environment and build student confidence through exposure. They also allow for structured debriefings across a range of skill sets and clinical interventions.

For enhanced resilience training, students have the option to wear Astroskins and Hexoskins, to assess their vital signs. In our training setting, these smart garments allow the trainer to assess the biometric responses of students, such as their stress response. This allows for a more detailed and personalised performance assessment whilst providing active interventions to control the stress response.

The High-Fidelity Training and Simulation Centre offers highly-motivated individuals the opportunity to enhance their professional development and obtain qualifications in a number of nationally-recognised courses. We can also work with your company to develop a contextualised training plan to suit the needs of your team.

As Emergency Australia is a Registered Training Organisation 41448, our qualifications are nationally recognised. Our courses range from 1 day courses to diploma level accreditations for individuals and groups.

Medical support:

Each site and event is unique. Medical support needs to ensure the stabilisation and extraction of personnel, to definitive care. Our specialty is remote medical support using Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) registered healthcare professionals, with experience in complex and remote environments. Our staff have experience across both government and private sectors including mining, oil and gas, motorsport, corporate and event medical support.

WHS solutions:

We understand the annual legislative requirements for Australian organisations, to ensure staff, contractors and visitors operate in a safe, supportive environment. Each workplace is unique, we work to tailor and automate a solution to enhance safety in the workplace, whilst supporting daily operational requirements.

We look forward to working closely with you and supporting your requirements.
