Buguias, Benguet launched its first Rescue Olympics to help communities better prepare for disasters and emergencies by raising awareness on the importance of disaster resiliency and emergency preparedness.

Mayor Ruben Tinda-an said the activity was done to make the public aware on the importance of resiliency and disaster-preparedness in the development of communities.

He asked the students to apply the skills and knowledge they gained from the training on emergency management.

He also cited the importance of holding continuous trainings.

The Rescue Olympics was initiated by the municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management office, Bureau of Fire Protection, Lutheran Hospital, and nurses of the Department of Education.

Six schools participated in the competition that aimed to test their skills in emergency management. Each school had two rescue teams that executed the proper mechanics of emergency management in four different stations under time pressure.

Buguias National High School emerged as the champion, followed by Bangao NHS, Catlubong NHS, Sinipsip NHS-Natubleng Extension, Loo NHS, and Sinipsip NHS-Main for the first up to fifth places, respectively.

The student-rescuers admitted the time given to complete the tasks coupled with the fear of failing kept them on tenterhooks.

The organizers asked the students and residents to organize and participate in DRRM trainings.
