Twenty-two officers of Palawan’s Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO) have finished their five-day Basic Life Support (BLS-SFAT) with Standard First Aid Training.
The said training was held last January 21 until 25 at the La Charica Inn and Suites.
“Pangunahing tinalakay sa pagsasanay ang kahalagahan na malaman ng isang responder ang tamang paraan kung paano makasasagip ng buhay ng isang tao na nasa panganib,” the province said.
Yanika Seratubias from PDRRMO said that the training equipped her with the skills needed to save lives.
“Actually nakakahiya na lumakad ka ng capitol na malaman na taga PDR ka na ikaw mismo wala kang knowledge of BLS and standard first aid, as in yun ang dilemma ko nun nakakahiya kasi baka mamaya nakasuot ka ng 165 tshirt tapos napadaan ka wala kang magawa, at least ngayon after this training talagang makakapaglakad ka na may alam ka,” she was quoted as saying.
The participants were also taught how to put bandage as they conduct casualty incident simulation to see the skills of fist aid responders.
“Layunin ng proyekto na mas mapalawak pa ang kalaaman ng mga kawani ng PDDRMO upang lalong mapabilis at mapabuti ang kalidad ng serbisyo sa mamamayang palawenyo,” said the province.
