BONTOC, Mountain Province – The importance of disaster preparedness and risk management among the youth continues to gain headway here as 106 student leaders from Mountain Province State Polytechnic College participated in a two-day basic life support-basic rope manship training.
The students learned the different types of knots, loops, bends, hitches, proper knot tying, and application of standard and Australian rappel during the activity on March 18 and 19 at the Provincial Evacuation Center in Bontoc.
Trainers from the Bureau of Fire Protection lauded the MPSPC-Student Supreme Council officers for initiating the training and their dedication in learning life skills.
The BFP said the students requested them to conduct the activity and coordinated with the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office for equipment needed for the training.
The BFP committed to conduct similar activities in the future. – Valerie Taguba
