Emergency Response (Two day training)

Considering the importance of Emergency Preparedness, basic first aid training and emergency related drills and demonstrations were arranged for college and university students under the supervision of Scouts Trainers, Doctors and

Volunteers who are expert in this subject:
 To train more scouts and volunteers especially for different emergency related situations
 To raise awareness about different hazards and their impact on local population
 Further train and establish different Scouts and Emergency Units at District level
 Building capacity of scout groups and their leaders on emergency and disaster
 To play role in strengthening the culture of safety within and around the communities (including schools)
 Having more emergency and DRR working group at District and Provincial level
 To have more mutual collaboration with national and international organisation (NDMA/PDMA, UN Agencies, Civil Defence, Pakistan Red Crescent and others)

Emergency Response, School & Community Based Training:
Children of any region or community are considered to be the most vulnerable population mostly because of their age factor and also they are less aware about their surroundings and environment and often are very much vulnerable to any hazard, risk or any kind of disaster. Continuous climate change and different natural and man-made disasters make this focused population more at risk before of their limited understanding and knowledge towards Disaster Risk Reduction, Emergency Preparedness and schools safety. The main aim of these sort of initiatives was to priorities the main areas of Disaster Risk Reduction, Emergency Preparedness and schools safety, such as:
 Safe schools and the continuation of education
 Child protection
 The right to participation and access to basic DRR and other information
 Safe infrastructure and measure required in reducing future risk
 Reaching the most vulnerable population (children, elderly population, disable, women)

Basic First Aid Training In today’s context where we have to frequently deal with different incidents in relation to different emergencies, accidents, disasters and causalities due to different reasons. To further counter any natural and man-made emergency in a better way and minimise the risk associated it is very necessary to have groups of scouts and volunteers ready and fully equipped with all the basic knowledge and understanding in order to deal such situation. For that reason one day training exercise and drills were conducted for scouts and volunteers from different colleges and universities to take part in these first aid practical demonstration to be fully equipped with basic aid training, especially in case for any emergency or hazard. First training was conducted with the mutual collaboration of Pakistan Red Crescent Society (PRCS), where their trainers practically demonstrated different drills before the participants. The core objective of having these trainings is to:
 Have capacity to deal with emergency situations (Assess, Alert, Attend)
 Know the limits of basic first aid
 Be aware of the duties as a scout or volunteer while involved or providing first aid
 In a position to prevent worsening the current situation and promote recovery (before the patient is shifted to better health facility)
 Be aware of all potential hazards (natural and man-made)
 Fully trained in using first aid equipment and items (also capable enough to use to local/available items)
