First Aid Program
First Aid Program is the flagship program of RC/RC Movement and First Aid Trainings are the strength of Pakistan Red Crescent (PRC). PRC has changed its strategic direction to increase its outreach. Initially the Program was running in NHQ and 7 x Provincial Branches, providing regular first aid trainings through it’s volunteers all over Pakistan. Keeping in view the increased number of RTAs, bomb blasts, floods and earthquakes, PRC decided to take up the momentous goal of training a “First Aider in every home” The program will now be implemented in 152 districts of Pakistan, through District First Aid Trainer in each district. The target audience for this program will be educational institution (schools, colleges and universities). Pakistan produces about 445,000 university graduates and 10,000 computer science graduates annually. A number of institutions of higher learning are active in the country, and keeping in view the Pakistan’s Context, these are the influential driving forces behind every concept. PRC First Aid Program will target these to run its First Aid Trainings for their communities who in turn will make this a part of their curriculum and train every student the F.A skills. Universities not only spread knowledge, they also spread in the society, to the families and extended families.
PRC commits to provide standardized quality first aid trainings in line with RC/RC movement standards. PRC adheres to achieve its goal & “a first aider in every home”
Currently the goal is to hire 90 District First Aid Trainers plus a pool of F.A trained volunteers who are conducting 5 x Basic First Aid Trainings each month for identified colleges, schools and universities.
The District FA Trainer will be responsible not only for the training but also for daily reporting, maintaining data base at the district level and onward submission to Provincial FA Coordinators, who in turn will report to NHQ. This will be achieved by giving all the DFATs a dashboard reporting application on android phones. The DFATs will enter their reports and participants attendance sheets on their phones, which will be visible to the FA Coordinators at PHQs and the FA Team at NHQ.
Result I: The target number of schools, colleges and universities have increased knowledge and awareness about First Aid.
Result II: The knowledge and skills regarding First Aid of university students has increased and they can perform these skills independently if and when required.
Result III: Each District has its own Emergency Response Team who is fully equipped and is ready to respond in case of any emergency.
