Canada Global (Web News) Saskatchewan has formally launched a new emergency equipment training programme for first responders.
Christine Tell, the minister of public safety for Saskatchewan, made a Friday announcement regarding a new equipment training programme for volunteer first responders.
The Transportation Rescue Extrication (TREX) programme teaches participants how to employ auto-extrication tools to rescue passengers hurt in crashes and major incidents.
He claimed that this SGI-funded and public safety ministry-run training will enhance the skills of emergency responders in our province.
Since volunteer firefighters are frequently the first to respond to accidents, particularly in rural areas, they will be able to complete the programme.
More Saskatchewan firemen are now equipped with the particular training and resources they require to respond to collisions in their neighbourhood because to the TREX programme, according to Tell.
Funding for the programme comes from Saskatchewan Government Insurance, totaling $5.6 million.
