Roads for Life Delivers Certificates to New Lebanese Red Cross Graduates
May 01, 2017
25 Lebanese Red Cross (LRC) emergency medical service volunteers from throughout Lebanon received certificates from Roads for Life (RFL) for their participation in the latest Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) training session in cooperation with the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) from the United States. BLC Bank has been financing PHTLS sessions since 2012.
During the graduation ceremony held in Bethania – Harissa, RFL President Zeina Kassem said “The public sector has to join in the efforts made by private companies to road safety and to train professionals on the best techniques to take advantage of the golden hour for rescue. He explained that traffic law is based on three pillars, namely legal provisions, security forces and citizens. If any of these pillars is unsettled, the whole law is crippled and its implementation is hindered, hence the need to develop the law, promote security forces and foster a culture of upholding the law among citizens.”
