Fernandino rescuers now ‘certified’
City of San Fernando Website

A batch of 30 members of the Emergency Medical Service (EMS) from the City of San Fernando recently successfully completed a city-sponsored training on basic life support, advance cardiac life support, incident command system, and emergency medical services.

City Mayor Oscar S. Rodriguez personally congratulated the trainees during their graduation rites on January 14 at the Heroes Hall.

With the goal of “zero casualty”, the graduates are now expected to respond immediately to situations and the City expects them to be always prepared for any threat of catastrophe.

The EMS personnel is sub-grouped into the San Fernando Rescue Unit (SAFRU) and are assigned as the initial responders of the city in emergency circumstances like floods, earthquakes, road accidents and relief operations.

The Emergency Medical Training is a preparation for a higher level of training and other programs for a more proficient, effective and efficient response to calls received through the City’s emergency hotline 961-HELP (or 961-4357). (CSFP-CIO)
