At least 30 employees of the city government of Bislig in Surigao del Sur have completed their Basic Life Support training conducted by the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO) from July 26 to 28.

In a statement Friday, the city government said it wants its employees to be equipped with knowledge and skills on life support.

The training also aimed to boost the capabilities of the employees to respond to emergencies, especially in times of natural or man-made disasters.

During the course, the employees were trained on the proper application of cardiopulmonary resuscitation, physical examination, and pre-hospital care.

The participants were also trained in bandaging, proper lifting and moving, and mass casualty incident and triage.

“A return demonstration and simulation exercises were also performed by the participants to assess their skills,” the statement said.

It said the program is among the priorities of Mayor Florencio Garay, who emphasized the importance of the readiness of local government employees as responders in times of calamities and disasters.

Aside from the CDRRMO, the activity was also supervised by personnel of the Bislig 911 Team and Emergency Medical Services. (PNA)
