St. John Ambulance is looking to expand its programs that involve imparting valuable first-aid, lifesaving, communication and emergency management skills to youth and children.
The organization has served the country for more than 60 years, and within that period have expanded their services to include training youngsters in emergency related skills.
St. John Ambulance CEO Matthew Cannon in an interview with PNG HAUSBUNG during their recent Open Day celebrations stated that they would like to see those numbers increase not just in Port Moresby but in other centers as well.
“We provide trainings around 5000 high school students each year in first aid.” “We are expanding that now with our reservist volunteer program.”
“We’ve revived the program to include a residential college training at our residential ambulance service college at Baruni.”
“We want to see the numbers increase in Port Moresby, Lae and Kokopo.” Mr. Cannon added it was his hope that this will provide opportunities to those looking for full-time employment in the health sector.
