Teaching and non-teaching personnel from the Philippine Women’s College of Davao’s Tertiary Education Department were part of the First Aid Training Seminar and Workshop conducted by the Central 911 last October 19-20 held at the RSM Events Center on the PWC of Davao campus.

The two day training on first aid is of utmost importance not just as members of the PWC of Davao community, wherein they are now very much capable and dependable to provide first-aid for students and colleagues who may be in need of such, but also in their everyday lives. The PWC does not just provide holistic education to its students, but ensures that its faculty and personnel is well equipped as well.

Speakers and Workshop facilitators from the city’s Central 911 office started off by showcasing the services offered by the Central 911 office, such as emergency support, training (like this one), among others. The attendees were given a glimpse on the do’s and don’ts when it comes to first-aid before they delved deeper into hands-on training later on in the afternoon of the first of two days.

The objectives of having the staff realize the importance of first aid, the do’s and don’ts when it comes to giving first aid, the relationship between first aid and the law, and common knowledge on the right first aid practices and preventions was met throughout the two day training.

Indeed, first aid can spell the difference between life and death in real life application and while we may not wish this to happen to anyone, it is good to know that the tertiary education staff is knowledgable and certified in handling situations that require first aid service.
