The Energy Development Corp. will hold a three-day training on All-hazard Community Emergency Response (ACER) and on Austere Environment Rescue Operation (AERO) for first responders from barangays Puhagan, Caidiocan, and Malaunay in the town of Valencia.

The training course aims to empower first responders with knowledge on community-based emergency preparedness and humanitarian action services.

The disaster preparedness training for the barangay officials and volunteers will be conducted by Dr. Ted Esguerra, EDC’s emergency manager, who was also the emergency medical services physician of the Philippine Mt. Everest Expedition Team. Doc Ted is a member of the International Disaster Response Network.

Practical sessions in the three-day training include: buddy aid for vehicular accidents, motorcycle safety, hydrogen sulfide poisoning management, Utstein style rescue techniques in drowning; improvising stretchers, bamboo/gallon flotation devices, and tsinelas cervical splint; basic life support-cardio pulmonary resuscitation in the new normal; bandaging and splinting, landslide and helicopter operations, use of personal flotation devices, and flood- and river-crossing techniques.

Invited to the training course are the barangay officials from Puhagan, Caidiocan, and Malaunay; the Barangay Health & Emergency Response Teams (BHERT), the barangay tanods, Task Force Bantay Kabtangan, the respective Anti Drug Addiction Councils, the Peace and Order Council, and the local Disaster Risk-Reduction & -Managmement Councils.

At least 10 media practitioners, who normally cover calamities and emergency situations, have also been invited to participate in the training program.

The training will be held from Nov. 9-11 at the gym of barangay Puhagan, which hosts EDC’s Southern Negros Geothermal Project facilities.
