Donation of two defibrillators
French firefighter Dominique Dorange, who is also part of the Villa Altagracia firefighters academy, organized pre-hospital intervention aimed to the firefighters and the hospital staff of Las Terrenas.
In fact, both agencies received defibrillators from the association
Echanges Pompiers Mayenne – République Dominicaine which will also be available for the Red Cross and civil defense.
Nagua firefighters also participated to this training that lasted three days, with theoretical and practical classes. It finished with a simulation that allowed the participants to validate the acquired knowledge.
As indicated by a representative of civil defense this is the first time that a training of this nature is organized, allowing all agencies that provide assistance to victims to work together. Thanks to the presence of a paramedic from Santo Domingo the participants learned how to use defibrillators, oxygen, to extract a victim from a vehicle, reduce fractures, stop bleeding and PCR methods.
