FRA promotes safety for our staff and the community.  We encourage our students to utilise masks when engaging in close contact activites within our classes. FRA has installed specialised virus air filtration systems in our classrooms to ensure a safer environment.

  • Each of the manikins have been sanitised prior to use, including the face skins.
  • Each student will have there own 2 way bacterial filter for use in resuscitation.
  • Ample masks, gloves, alcohol wipes and sanitising gel are provided for your safety and convenience.
  • All First Aid supplies such as bandages, dressings etc. are new and are not re-used.
  • Full body manikins with moulage are provided for our bandaging workshops to eliminate person to person contact to comply with 'physical distancing' principles.
