IVTeam Philippines Hub in its commitment to help serve student nurses, nursing graduates and practitioners announces The Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC) Caloocan, Valenzuela, and Rizal chapters' safety training programs and activities this summer.
Echoing the directive from PNRC's Deputy Secretary Gwendolyn T. Pang, the 96-strong local chapters of PNRC were instructed to intensify their safety training programs.
“We have various programs which are very relevant and practical to implement this season,” Pang said
The PNRC Safe Summer Campaign covers safety institute, first aid and basic life support training and even swimming courses which are timely for summer.
First Aid and Basic Life Support Courses are the most requested training from different companies, schools, rescue groups and individuals which aims to disseminate information on safety practices during emergency situations.
On the other hand, Basic Life Support – Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (BLS – CPR) training focuses on life threatening emergency situations which deals not only with the adult victims but for children and infants as well.
Also, all chapters are encouraged to conduct lecture demonstration and mass education on adult CPR- Basic Life Support (BLS) and life saving tips to beach-goers.
PNRC Chairman Senator Richard Gordon also added that this season is also timely to campaign for Red Cross membership and to encourage more people to be members of the organization.
“Let us take this as an opportunity not only to intensify the Safety Services training program but also to strengthen the membership program of PNRC. We should encourage everyone to avail our membership or join our volunteer program,” Gordon added.
