Master training programme for officers of National Highways and Motorways Police in collaboration with Rescue 1122 was launched in Lahore today. The initiative aims to prepare trainers who can impart medical emergency training to first responders in the field. The event was graced by Inspector General NH&MP, Director General Rescue 1122 and many senior officers of both organizations.
Speaking at the occasion, Inspector General NH&MP, Muhammad Amir Zulfiqar said that in most situations, law enforcement officers are first on the scene and can minimize damage with some very basic, yet essential, skills.
He further added that with the continuously evolving threat paradigm, it is essential to train our officers in rendering medical assistance. Even if a person is stabilized long enough for medical professionals to take over, a life can be saved.
The Inspector General expressed his gratitude to the management of Rescue 1122 for their assistance and hoped that it shall help render prompt relief to commuters in distress.
