The Search and Rescue Team of A-PAD Sri Lanka, along with some members from the private sector recently underwent a training on Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). The program was conducted and facilitated y Mr. Asanka Nanayakkara, President of Sri Lanka Life Saving (SLLS). Participants sat through a classroom session which was then followed by practical activities and personal assessments. Thereafter, an internationally recognized license and certificate was handed over to the participants.
This workshop enabled participants to learn basic life support, especially during search and rescue operations, forseeing the threat of floods/landslides during the South West Monsoon.
