SAN JUAN, La Union: A crisis management training is conducted by the United States Army medics in the province for local government agencies, Red Cross volunteers, police forces and Barangay Disaster Risk Reduction Management Councils on Monday.
Sgt. Charles Warner, a US Army medic said the activity is also a venue for sharing and trading of information among participants.
Bobby Valdriz, of the La Union Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council, said the main objective of the said training is to enhance the skills and knowledge of rescuers through the First Basic Responders Course.
“The particular training today is a Mass-Casualties Training so we are here to conduct some high- rope training (procedure) and basically were simulating a bus roll over so that way they get to experience natural disaster that you experience in this country,” Warner said.
