Baguio workers might benefit from annual first-aid training.

BAGUIO CITY, PHILIPPINES — The local government wants to make an annual training that will prepare government employees and front-line city workers to respond to emergencies more formalized.

Councilor Mylen Yaranon filed a proposed measure amending a section of Ordinance 129-2018 that required all private and public establishments to provide basic life-support services by employing personnel trained to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), use automated external defibrillators (AED), and apply first aid in the event of emergencies in their respective businesses, according to Jordan Habbiling, Baguio City Council’s information officer.

According to Habbiling, the proposed ordinance modification mandates government employees, barangay officials, security guards, and hotel staff to receive annual CPR and basic life support training.

According to him, the idea aims to ensure that the 2018 legislation is carried out by having immediately available emergency responders with up-to-date expertise.

The project will be handled by the City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council, which has the necessary equipment and training capabilities. In addition, the training might be provided by various private organizations and emergency response groups in the city.
