At Halo Solutions, we understand the paramount importance of emergency preparedness, especially in high-traffic venues like ExCeL London. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our recent collaboration with ExCeL London in delivering Mass Casualty Training, a crucial component of the venue’s Major Incident Training Programme.
On the 30th of January, our dedicated team at Halo Solutions joined forces with ExCeL London to orchestrate a comprehensive training session aimed at enhancing the emergency response capabilities of security officers, contractors, in-house staff, directors, and key stakeholders. With over 300 participants in attendance, including observers from NaCSTO, the Metropolitan Police, and other partner organisations, the event was a resounding success.
Under the guidance of Henry Havis, ExCeL London’s Head of Security, the training session commenced with an insightful address highlighting the venue’s remarkable achievements in 2023 and its ambitious expansion plans for 2024. From hosting a record-breaking 2,000 events to implementing state-of-the-art security measures, ExCeL London continues to set the standard for excellence in event management and safety. As Henry Havis stated in his opening address, these operators are the “guardians of ExCeL” and everyone’s efforts, professionalism & emergency preparedness are valued equally, no matter their role.
Throughout the day, participants engaged in a series of exercises designed to simulate real-world emergency scenarios. From threat updates and hostile reconnaissance to full-scale mass casualty simulations, each exercise provided invaluable insights and practical experience in emergency response protocols. Special emphasis was placed on trauma care, whole-site evacuations, and protester engagement, ensuring that every aspect of emergency preparedness was thoroughly covered.
We extend our sincere gratitude to all the delegates from Carlisle Support, Secure Ops, EEP, G4S, Stambridge Group, ICTS, and ExCeL London for their unwavering commitment and active participation in the training sessions. Their dedication and professionalism exemplify the spirit of collaboration and collective responsibility that defines the Halo Community.
We would also like to acknowledge the invaluable contribution of Amputees in Action, whose expertise in delivering hyper-realistic emergency scenarios elevated the training experience to new heights. Their commitment to realism and attention to detail played a pivotal role in creating a dynamic learning environment for all participants.
Looking ahead, Halo Solutions remains firmly committed to supporting venues like ExCeL London in their pursuit of enhanced security and emergency preparedness. Through continued investment in technology and training initiatives, we aim to empower our partners to navigate the complexities of the modern security landscape with confidence and resilience.
Lastly, we would like to express our gratitude to ExCeL London for their unwavering dedication to safety and security. Together, we are paving the way for safer more secure future for events and gatherings of all sizes.
