On 19-21 October 2015, a First-Aid training course was held at the IRRI Myanmar Office.  The course was facilitated by the Corporate Services in partnership with the Myanmar Red Cross Society.  First batch training attendees were from the project and support teams.

The 3-day training course covered different first-aid techniques and scenarios such as first-aid concepts, victim assessment, shock, fainting, burns and scalds, wounds and bleeding, CPR, musculoskeletal injuries, poisoning, animal bites and stings, dressing and bandaging, head injury, unconscious handling and transportation.  

Similar training for the rest of the staff members is tentatively scheduled early next year.
