Mountain rescuers need more appropriate equipment

Mountain rescuers need more appropriate equipment

ALABEL, Sarangani (September 17, 2019) – Fire Officer 3 Robert Carlo Rafosala of the Davao del Norte Provincial Fire Marshall’s Office Special Rescue Unit evaluates the performance of the participants during the Mountain Search and Rescue Training held at Barangay Spring on September 12. These rescuers from the seven municipalities have undergone activities in their 5-day training including the Rope Rescue, Landslide Incidents Search and Rescue, High Angle, Slope Evacuation, Navigation, Compass and GPS to test their skills. According to Rafosala’s assessment, the rescuers already have the skills but there is a need for improvement in terms of sufficient and appropriate equipment.
