SNAP-Benguet trains Itogon workers on water rescue awareness

SN Aboitiz Power-Benguet, Inc. (SNAPBenguet) sponsored a two-day training course on water rescue awareness last May 6 and 7 in Itogon, Benguet for volunteer rescue workers from barangays Ambuklao, Tinongdan, and Dalupirip.

The training was conducted by Emergency Research Center, a non-governmental organization that specializes in emergency preparedness, management, and education. Led by directors Louie Domingo and Aaron Flynn, the participants spent two days learning about safety measures when working near water, and how to use basic water equipment. They also had water activities where they learned how to manage water-related injuries and save individuals in water-related accidents.
