Terrorism Risk and Incident Prevention suite launches for fleets

Aimed at van fleets as well as HGV operations, the ‘TRIP’ has been launched in response to to the recent rise of VAAW (Vehicle as a Weapon) terrorism-related incidents according to the firm.

The training is designed to educate commercial fleet operators, managers and on the risks of terrorism, the nature of the threats that they may face and a range of safety precautions they should implement to significantly reduce the possibilities of their vehicle being hijacked or stolen and used in a terrorist incident.

Nick Caesari, managing director at Fleet Source, said: “With over 35% of our work force being from a military and policing background, with many having extensive counter-terrorism experience, we felt that we were perfectly positioned to help educate fleet operators, managers and drivers in taking the necessary precautions and to make sure they are doing absolutely everything possible to prevent their vehicle from being hijacked or stolen and used as a weapon in an attack.”

Earlier this year, telematics firm Trak Global Group (TGG) spoke out after the London Bridge attack and said that deploying a centrally managed platform for telematics devices could immobilise vehicles used for criminal activity, particularly in terrorist attacks.

Products and services on offer from fleet Source include TRIP Driver CPC Training, which will provide drivers with the information they need to keep themselves, their vehicle and others around them safe, as well as seven hours of accredited DCPC (Driver Certificate of Professional Competence) training.

Fleet Source is offering fully funded places to fleet operators on the TRIP Driver CPC Training courses, across major cities in the UK (London, Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol, Glasgow, Newcastle).
