Around 70 volunteers and personnel of the Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño de Cebu (BMSN) participated in the First Aid and Basic Life Support seminar held at the BMSN convent sala on Wednesday morning.
Speakers from the Department of Health (DOH) shared their knowledge about the basics on life support and first aid to the members of the Basilica working force including the medical team, security personnel, pilgrim assistant volunteers (BPAV), alongside some students and employees.
Alem Saga, BMSN Safety Officer, said that its main goal is to educate the volunteers about the matter in case of emergencies that may happen in the Basilica more so during big events such as the Fiesta Señor and the upcoming Santo Niño at 500.
He added that the seminar is an annual activity of the Basilica. /Guada Rebuta, USJ-R Communication Intern
