Disaster Risk Reduction and First Aid training program for school scouting students- Badulla District

May 28, 2018

Over the past few years as the inclement weather conditions have caused landslides and floods, disaster management has been at the top of the priority list in the scouting  program.  With  this  in  mind, the Badulla district school scouting officers requested for training programs in disaster management and first aid for the scouting students in order to enhance their  existing  knowledge  so  that  they can continue to carry out this important voluntary service in future. APAD – SL reciprocated their request and conducted a training and awareness program on disaster risk reduction and basic first aid for the scouting students from schools in the Badulla District. A total of 52 students from 3 schools participated in the training program, B / ST. Thomas Collage, B / Uwa College & B / Hiland College in Badulla and Bandarawela Divisions. The Assistant National Commissioner of Scouting at Head Quarters was the resource person for this training and conducted the program for the students.
