Chanto (Rasmei News) / Phnom Penh: To increase the knowledge in emergency situations, Brigade Command 70 Road Traffic Police Officers are taking a 5 day training course commencing on August 27, 2018.
JPR*, a Japanese specialist body, is running the workshops, and is also a sponsor of emergency equipment in Cambodia.
The training aims to improve emergency specialist skills for police traffic officers, police officers and firefighters.
*We, the JPR, have conducted programs, which aim for the improvement in survival
rates in developing countries and regions. Being different from the Japan Disaster
Relief Teams which is a formal governmental rescue team dispatched overseas in
time of severe natural disasters, the JPR aims to help counterparts in developing
countries to establish their own autonomous emergency and fire service by training
local firefighters and paramedics( or EMT) during peace times.
The JPR’s activities include training firefighters and paramedics(or EMT) in the host
nation and through the internet, donating emergency vehicles and rescue/paramedical
resources, among others.
So far, we have dispatched our professional training team to Zambia and Sri Lanka
and conducted training programs for local emergency workers. Our team will be
dispatched on several occasions in order to provide systematic training.
