Training provided to service providers of Amarnath yatra

District Disaster Management Authority Ganderbal under the guidance of DC Ganderbal Dr Piyush Singla imparted the Basic Life Support (BLS) training to all the service providers like ponywallas, pithus, dandiwallas etc to augment the first aid responsiveness of the system in view of any medical urgency.

The idea was conceptualized by DC Ganderbal  with a view that in most cases of medical emergency the service providers can act as Medical  First Responders (MFRs) and providing the basic training of CPR (Cardio-pulmonary Resuscitation) to service providers through special camps may help in saving the precious lives of pilgrims at critical time during Yatra.

The idea was welcomed by the service providers and they actively participated in the training sessions.
