Red Cross San Pablo conducts disaster response training

by Carlo P. Gonzaga

Calamba City (8 September) -- The Philippine Red Cross San Pablo City Chapter held recently the first Red Cross 143 Disaster Response and Training, in response to a call that all youth and non-government organizations (NGOs) participate as volunteers for Red Cross 143 Disaster Team to respond in times of emergencies.

The seminar-training was participated by representatives from the Adventist Community Service, Alpha Phi Omega, the Department of Education (DepEd), San Pablo City Elementary and High School Division, Citizen Crime Watch, Guardian Brotherhood Field Force, Kabalikat Civic Communication, Pastoral council, Prime Movers, Red Cross volunteers and staff, Scouts Royale Brotherhood (SRB), San Pablo Women's Federation and other NGOs.

Red Cross Administrator Dorie Cabela said it is high time to organize Red Cross 143 Disaster Response Team in every barangay/community, and school that will respond to victims during disasters and provide appropriate and immediate first aid or medical treatment.

The topics discussed during the two-day seminar-workshop include evacuating/abandoning the area immediately, handling or carrying, and transporting patient/victim or injured person, applying first aide and other treatment like cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) techniques, wound care methods, bandaging methods (wound or burn); first aid in drowning, choking, fire, explosion, heart attack, nose bleeding, rescue, and other problems that may mean loss of life.

After the seminar-training, the first batch of Red Cross 143 Disaster Response Team officers was formed. (PIA Calabarzon) [top]
