Caluttit youth trains in BLS, basic disaster risk management
by Alpine L. Killa

BONTOC, Mountain Province – At least 30 Sangguniang Kabataaan members and social workers in Barangay Caluttit are now equipped with disaster risk reduction and management (DRRM) knowledge, skills, and attitude and are prepared to respond to emergency cases.

This is after the conduct of basic DRRM, basic life support, and first aid training spearheaded by Barangay Caluttit through its SK and the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (MDRRMO) on Aug. 25 to 27.

The participants were oriented on the principles of emergency cases, basic life support, cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and basic first aid.

Demonstrations on CPR, foreign body airway obstruction management and rescue breathing due to respiratory arrest and on foreign airway body obstruction were also conducted.

The participants were also taught on bandaging techniques using triangular bandage, bandaging techniques using elastic bandage, splinting techniques, patient packing and transport, rescue carries, basic DRRM and matters relating to fire.

The training was made possible after Caluttit SK Chair Enver Caluza requested the local government of Bontoc through its MDRRMO to conduct basic life support training through a cost-sharing scheme.

The SK allotted P20,000 while the LGU allotted P25,000. Materials used in the training were borrowed from Luis Hora Memorial Regional Hospital and Red Cross-Mountain Province.

MDRRM Officer Johanna F. Padaen said the training aimed to strengthen the involvement of the youth on DRRM, empower them with the information and skills to help communities in times of crisis, and intensify their leadership skills.

Mayor Franklin Odsey commended barangay officials of Caluttit for initiating the activity.

“The knowledge and skills that you will acquire from this training will surely help save your lives, the lives of your families, and the lives of people not only in your respective barangays but in the places you will go,” he said.

The participants underwent return demonstrations on CPR and foreign airway body obstruction.

They also performed simulation exercises and skills examinations on CPR, foreign airway body obstruction, soft tissue and burn injury management, splinting and rescue carries, and patient packing and transport.

The facilitators are the members of the Bontoc Emergency Response Team, personnel of the MDRRMO, Bontoc Municipal Fire Station, and Red Cross-Mountain Province.
