The story of Real Response starts in 2010 when Benjamin Krynski founded a boutique first aid training company called Phoenix First Aid. Soon after Co-founder Motti Blum joined the team. For about 4 years, Ben and Motti ran traditional first aid courses for businesses and other organisations around Melbourne. This evolved into Real First AId in October 2014 upon receiving some initial seed funding to create a company to meet the acute need for engaging, interactive and realistic first aid training in Australia. Real First Aid delivered realistic scenario based training tailored for each individual client. These courses incorporated role playing, props, fake wounds, flashing lights, sirens, smoke, odours and an answering service designed to simulate 000 calls. 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.
