A call to help engineering society give first aid training to Khayelitsha locals
The President at Khayelitsha Engineering Society Arthur Mabentsela says there is a need for basic first-aid training.
This call comes after an article about an ambulance driver who refused to go on a call out citing that people often call the ambulance for the very simplest of problems.
And sadly the patient there died. And as a society, we believe that there is some truth to that, in that our people do call ambulances for the very minor of problems because they are not equipped with first aid training.— Arthur Mabentsela, President at Khayelitsha Engineering Society
He added that as the Khayelitsha Engineering Society, they wish to eradicate that by providing a solution by giving people first aid training ensuring that they help themselves.
At least with the smallest of issues before they run to the hospital.— Arthur Mabentsela, President at Khayelitsha Engineering Society
Mabantsela says they would like companies to heed their call by providing certifiable first-aid training.
He added that they are looking to train 50 individuals for this round and companies wishing to be part of this initiative can call them on 021 650 1212.
