The Local Council of Lipa City Boy Scouts of the Philippines conducted a training of Disaster and Risk Reduction and Management Training held at Sen. Claro M. Recto Memorial School last March 18 – 20, 2016. The course leader, Sctr. Nevard Glenn Orsos, WBH prepared an exciting and memorable training for 40 scouts from different schools including two (2) Eagle Scouts from our institution, Eagle Scout Carl Ivan Linang and Eagle Scout Carmela Cruz. At the second day of training, the trainees were divided into 4 crews namely, Crew Lindol, Crew Buhawi, Crew Tsunami and Crew Bagyo. Eagle Scout Aldrin Oliva differentiates the meanings of disaster, risk, hazard, and emergency. After that Sctr. Jay Sargento, WBH delivered a talk about calamities. He taught us the deeper meaning of different calamities. After that, the base method was conducted. On base 1, Eagle Scout Aldrin Oliva taught us how and when to give Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). On base 2, Sctr. Jay U. Sargento, WBH taught us about basic first aid, bandaging techniques, and triaging. On base 3, this is the last base, Sctr. Randy Lescano taught us about proper carries for emergency transfer, how to assist them and how to package them in the spine board. At night, we have our camp fire which exhibited the talents of each and every scout in singing and yelling. After that, the course leader told the scouts to cover their eyes with their neckerchief. Little did they know that they will have an emergency rescue exercise, secretly prepared by the staff. They applied what they have learned and the trainers were so happy because they accomplish it well. After that they take their rest. On the last day of training, we proceeded to Lipa City Community Park to have our Water Rescue Training delivered by Sctr. Jay Sargento, WBH. Then we are on our way on our camp site when we heard 2 consecutive gunshot like sound and we ran quickly there and have our last emergency rescue exercise that make our trainers so happy because we done it well again. After freshening up, we have our closing ceremonies and we went home with a smile and full of knowledge about disaster and risk reduction and management.
