Training Opportunity – Project ARGUS

Following demand from city centre businesses, Sheffield BID will host a third Project ARGUS training event next month.

Project ARGUS is a NaCTSO* led initiative, which asks businesses and organisations to consider their preparedness for a terrorist attack. The training guides participants through a simulated multi-media attack which identifies the measures that can assist in preventing, handling and recovering from such an incident. It explores what is likely to happen in the event of a terror attack. It highlights the importance of being prepared and having the necessary plans in place to help safeguard staff, visitors and assets. It also includes a module on the use of firearms by terrorists.

The Project ARGUS training is an opportunity for businesses to assess how prepared they are for any major incident and the more likely scenarios such as natural disasters or accidents.

Date: 7th June 2016
Time: 12 noon (for a 12.30 start)
Venue: Memorial Hall, Sheffield City Hall
Refreshments: A light lunch will be available

The event is free of charge and lasts for approximately two hours. To book a place please email paul.grogan@sheffieldbid.com.
