After providing training in basic life support (BLS) and first aid techniques to over 8,500 people till date, Fortis Hospital Mohali under its campaign to build a ‘generation of lifesavers’ has decided to rope in the community at large in this task. In the past year alone, close to 3,000 personnel from Punjab and UT police have received certified training in BLS skills from Fortis Mohali. Apart from this, students from dozens of tri-city schools have also attended these regular workshops, thus learning the skills early on.
On Saturday evening, British Deputy High Commissioner Chandigarh Mr David Lelliott and SP (Communications & Law and Order) UT Police, Mr Roshan Lal, launched a Fortis Hospital initiative ‘Hands on Heart Club’ to teach the Tricity residents BLS skills and improve their preparedness for handling medical emergencies. Sector 17 Plaza witnessed a foot-tapping flash mob to demonstrate the ease and importance of learning hands-only Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) as part of the launch.
