Red Cross back in training mode

During the last recent trip to the outer islands, Red Cross staff from Majuro worked with volunteers on Ailinglaplap to train them in First Aid/CPR and Emergency Response Training.

Now that the outer islands travel advisory related to dengue fever has been lifted, the Marshall Islands Red Cross Society has resumed first aid training on remote islands.
“We are ready to get back into First Aid/CPR and Emergency Response Training for outer island communities,” said Red Cross spokesperson Roger Muller. “We are very grateful to be working closely with the traditional leaders, local governments, and the people of the outer islands in providing life-saving skills and disaster preparedness trainings. This month we have teams heading out to Aur and Wotho atolls.”

Muller said these training opportunities are possible thanks in great part to the National Training Council providing funding of these important trainings that help build community resilience.
