THE non-governmental Social Welfare Organisation has offered free training on evacuations for disasters and accidents.
The organisation, which was formed in 2013 in Myawady, has already provided courses to over 5,000 people in over 40 townships across the country with the aim to improve emergency services, said chairman U Hla Tun of the Social Welfare Organisation, who studied emergency services in New Zealand.
“Sometimes, some people are killed by natural disasters or accidents because they do not get emergency services in time.  This course mainly demonstrates practical approaches and changes the way people think,” he added.
The organisation recently offered the course to 130 members of charitable groups such as ChanMyaThuKha, Seittaya, Neikbanthukha, Amarashwepyi.
“Now that I have studied emergency services, I can now decide how to assist, depending upon the conditions. I can also handle broken limbs. That’s why I wish to invite other groups to attend the next course,” said Kyaw Kyaw Tun, an attendee of the course.
The organisation will open the course in Kyaukse on 15 March and in Mogok in April. The course is offered with the permission of the government. Charitable groups, fire-fighters and members of the Red Cross are invited to attend courses. The organisation provides the courses  free of charge upon invitation.
