BAGUIO CITY – The Philippine Nurses Association (PNA)- Baguio Chapter recently  created its own Emergency Response Team (ERT), initially composed of 11 volunteer member nurses, to help the city’s volunteer groups in responding to disasters or emergencies.

According to PNA – Baguio President Norenia Dao-ayen,  their ERT  can help provide pre-hospital management, medical transport and medical emergency care services.

‘Our emergency response team members have  undergone various emergency response training and  the team was  recently recognized by the City’s Emergency Medical Services (BCEMS) and the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP)’, Dao-ayen said.

She added that they  also set to train a team of second liners by January next year and are  building the team little by little in terms of equipment.

Dao-ayen said.they have been regularly providing volunteer services in times of emergencies or disasters but after what the country as a whole , and Cordillera in particular,  had  experienced  during  typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng last year, PNA Baguio decided to  create its  own emergency Response Team.

 PNA Baguio Team member Joy Malong affirmed that their team is currently doing a 24-hour monitoring rotation and are ready to help respond to emergencies, not only in the city Baguio but also to the nearby municipalities of Benguet.

She  also disclosed  that they have just finished different emergency response trainings such as Basic Life Support, Trauma Access, water and fire safety training and basic ropemanship.

‘For any emergency, the public can call us at telephone number 4421911. We are also linked with the City’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS),’ Malong added.

For the other services, Dao-ayen announced  that they are providing seminars, skills training and other assistance to new nurses. They are also  slowly building up their library for student nurses.

Dao-ayen also informed that  they are in the process of building a Hospice Care team to be composed by a group of nurses and physicians,  who will provide health care assistance to terminally ill patients. ** Lito Dar/PIA
