Clinic trains Red Cross Youth Volunteers
by Roslin Perez, RN University Nurse
As we all know accidents happen, always unexpectedly. It is always wise to have a basic knowledge of first aid. Emergency situations do not happen in the highway solely. They can arise at home, office, store, shopping mall, school and anywhere else. If you have first aid training you can apply it to save the lives of people affected by accident or sudden illness.
First Aid is responding to an emergency situation. Heart attacks, bleeding, drowning, choking, poisoning, electrocution, spinal injuries, eye injuries, scalds and burns are typical situations where having a basic knowledge of what to do - knowing proper first aid procedures - can be of critical help.
For such reasons, the Aquinas University Main Clinic conducted Basic First Aid Training (BFAT) among thirty (30) Red Cross Youth Volunteer (RCYV) aspirants from different colleges on September 8 and 10, 2012 from 8 am to 5 pm. The objectives of this activity are: 1) to form an RCY Volunteer group based in AUL who will assist in the implementation of health programs and activities of the university; 2) to train the RCY Volunteers handle emergency cases especially during the university wide activities such as College Intramurals; and 3) to develop a sense of responsibility and leadership among the members.
