PADANG. Sunday (28/12), 28 new volunteer members from Padang and Pekanbaru were inaugurated on the closing session of Basic Training program implemented in Kasang Campground, Padang Pariaman.
There were 30 candidates that participated in this training. However, a participant retired and another did not meet the criteria.
The training was implemented in 4 days from December 25th to 28th, 2014. In this opportunity, the candidates had a chance to learn many volunteerism materials such as huge tents installation and dismantling, emergency first aid, kitchen soup management, post management, land evacuation, survival, and communication.
In the last day, they were assigned to practice their new knowledge through earthquake disaster emergency response simulation. The new members were inaugurated symbolically by the submission of the volunteer’s scarf. ***
