BONTOC, Mountain Province – Twenty-eight students from the Mountain Province General Comprehensive High School (MPGCHS) attended the Basic Life Support (BLS) and standard first aid training on April 28 to 30.

The three-day training included lectures and demonstrations on the principles of emergency care and introduction of BLS; cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR); return demonstration on CPR; foreign body airway obstruction; first aid lecture; stationing on elastic bandaging, triangular bandaging, splinting, extrication, and spine board management; and individual and group assessments on the different skills taught.

Shirley Banaken, a Senior High School teacher and event coordinator, said the training would allow students to be more equipped with the skills to become part of the school’s Health Scouts Club.

The students expressed their gratitude to the facilitators for imparting skills and knowledge, which may come in handy in emergency cases.

School Nurse Jacqueline Kiat-ong who represented Principal IV Atkinson Tudlong expressed her gratitude to the Bontoc local government through the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (MDRRMO) for the positive response for the conduct of the training.

Kiat-ong also encouraged the participants to apply the knowledge and skills they gained from the training in their community and at home.

The trainers and facilitators are Local DRRMO II Meilynne Shalom Ayan, LDRRMO II Henrietta Lingbanan, Local Youth Development Officer-Designate Ross Kiat-ong, and members of the Bontoc Emergency Response Team.

The training was funded by the MPGCHS and technical assistance and some logistics needed for the training were provided by the MDRRMO.
