Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue
Service (RBFRS) are on the front lines every day, fighting fires, rescuing
animals and protecting the local community. On-call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, their operations span 18 fire stations across the county. All in all, they are responsible for around 125,914 hectares of land spanning from Slough to Newbury, with over 600 staff working tirelessly to serve a population of around 860,000 people.
Working with those who are elderly, vulnerable or at high-risk can be one of the most rewarding things you can do. But it can also be difficult, especially when you’re dealing with the challenging behaviour of the people you care for. Crisis Prevention Institute (or CPI) work closely with anyone who works in a care environment, from care homes for people with dementia, to hospitals or schools with special needs spaces, training staff recognise potential aggressive behaviour and how to manage it before a crisis point. The work CPI do falls under the umbrella of training in behaviour management, and they have been doing it for a long time now. Like most companies, they are looking to grow, and recently purchased a company called Pivotal Education as part of that growth plan. But with that purchase came a set of challenges, including how to integrate the two businesses effectively when they had two very different ways of doing things. That’s where Libreea came in.
