I attended a training on disaster preparedness in our barangay this morning, a continuation of our training before the election. It took 3 hours for the illustration and explaining about the matter, an hour for the training of fire fighting, how to handle in case there is an earthquake, lightning, typhoon and others. We were given many manuals to read. Attending the training gives us fun especially how to use the fire extinguisher, how to handle a first aid and basic life support. After the training, we are given 2 pack lunch each with mineral water, juices, our snacks and we are dismissed. We are not expecting that we have a free lunch. Have you gone to a training like this?

Indeed, our government unit trained us for this because we all know the month of June is rainy days and beginning of typhoons.

it is good your packed lunch is complete with water. we had some packed lunch and no water was served, so it was hard to swallow the foods given to us

How can we eat and swallow the food if not given water, if someone was choke, so I can help or you are there to help if someone was choke, you are a nurse and you know some first aid.

@ida123 we buy soda drinks when packed lunch is served. and we can always get away with choking, but not filling up the spoon with food, or chewing our food well. still, although not nurses, we must learn how to do the Heimlich's maneuver so choking is resolved.

@ridingbet yes, we have to chew the foods in a proper manner and when eating, be sure not to make our mouth full

It is good they conduct such training on disaster preparedness because our country is prone to such incidents like floods, storms, etc.

@JudyEv Yes, but I'm afraid seeing those fires and the heat of the fire. I know, you can still remember about first aid when you read some books about it.
