The training aims to let the personnel know how to address and respond to any emergency.

“In the training we learned to be supportive, responsible and confident in giving assistance to others in need when it arises,” one participant commented.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer I Ronald Gareza said that even without formal medical training they can also share what they have learned to the ARBs when they are on the field, where distance and facilities delay access to health institutions. *(JCM/EAD-PIA6/DAR Negros Occidental)
