(KPL) Two days were scheduled for training rescue teams in emergency medical services with the support of the Emergency Medical Centre of Thailand.
Over 70 representatives of Vientiane Rescue, Pasarnchai Rescue, Chinese Foundation and Khammouan Rescue attended the training course held on April 8-9.
The training aimed to increase the quality of local rescue teams so that they can provide medical help to those injured according to their level of emergency.
“This training course will equip the Lao rescue teams with proper medical techniques so that they can help those injured in accidents as we are right now preparing for incidents during the coming Lao New Year,” said Director of the Vientiane Rescue, Mr Lamngeun Phammachan, at the closing ceremony of the training course.
The trainers were led by Mr Taweepraween Nubumlung, Acting Manager, Training Center, Poh Teck Tung Thailand.
The EMS are a type of emergency care dedicated to providing out-of-hospital acute medical care, transport to definitive care, and other medical transport to patients with illnesses and injuries which prevent the patient from transporting themselves.
“I have been a volunteer with Vientiane Rescue for two years. I was very happy to attend the training course as it will help me to perform my emergency rescue duty better,” said Ms Nidavone Saythongdeth.
“I decided to be a volunteer of Vientiane Recue because four years ago, my younger brother was killed in a road accident as nobody could rescue him promptly,” Ms Nidavone added.
