The Capital Maharaja Media Organization is of the view that their journalists should not only broadcast and report incidents of lives being saved but should also be of a capability to engage in the act themselves. Therefore, they enlisted the assistance of A-PAD SL who joined hands with Sri Lanka Life Saving (SLLS) in conducting a training program at the Mt. Lavinia beach for 27 members of the Gammadda V-Force – an initiative under the Capital Maharaja group.
The program commenced with the SLLS President, Mr. Asanka Nanayakkara, briefing the V-Force on the essentials of life saving at sea after which various physical activities were conducted for the participants with the inclusion of a boat capsizing exercise demonstrated by the Swift Water Level 01 trainees. A-PAD SL supported the program by providing necessary training gear and equipment for the entire session. At the conclusion of the event, certificates of recognition were distributed to all participants.
