The story of Real Response starts in 2009 Ben Krynski founded a boutique first aid training company called Phoenix First Aid from his parents garage. A year later Co-founder Motti Blum joined the team. For about 4 years, Ben and Motti ran sporadic traditional first aid courses for businesses and other organisations around Melbourne while they both focused on other goals.
During this time, Ben and Motti played around with simulation and how to incorporate it into traditional first aid courses This lead to receiving some seed funding and the creation of Real First Aid in October 2014.
This funding allowed Ben and Motti to focus more time on the company and meet the acute need for engaging, interactive and realistic first aid training in Australia. Real First Aid delivered realistic simulation based training for over to 10,000 students. Each course incorporated role playing, props, fake wounds, flashing lights, sirens, smoke, odours and an answering service designed to simulate 000 calls.
By mid 2017 It was clear that the demand for simulation and reality based learning existed far beyond first aid and the journey begun to expand into a range of other disciplines.
2018 has seen to further evolution to Real Response, A company dedicated not only to first aid but to a range of emergency response services including security, fire, and disaster relief and incorporating virtual reality (VR) as key component of how we deliver training.
