Fortis Hospital, Anandapur, and Tiljala Traffic Guard came together to impart Basic Life Support Training


News Desk, News Nation 360: Fortis Hospital, Anandapur, in association with Tiljala Traffic Guard, conducted a training program for traffic police on Basic Life Support during health emergencies on the occasion of World Heart Day. The session was conducted by Dr Shuvanan Ray and Dr K M Mandana and attended by 30 traffic police personnel and drivers from different sections of the society. The training is aimed at imparting knowledge on the do’s and don’ts for traffic police during health emergencies, road accidents, or other similar mishaps. The training session highlighted the role of traffic police in situations that require an understanding of how to handle such fatalities with precision. Souvik Chakroborty officer in charge of Tiljala Traffic Guard stated that he is grateful to Fortis hospital for taking this initiative wherein he brought around 30 traffic police for Basic Life Support Training to be applied during emergencies. He has also brought drivers from different sections of society to help them learn about immediate support during a medical emergency. He believes that men who will get trained in this session will be able to teach more traffic police in the upcoming days. Director CTVS, Fortis Hospital, Anandapur expressed that on the occasion of World Heart Day they have invited Kolkata police for the training program. The police are

trained but the civic volunteers and the guards are not. Hence the individual training program was initiated by them as they are the first responders on the street and they should be aware of how to manage a patient who had an accident. BLS training would give them the requisite knowledge and understanding of the immediate support they can provide and then they can rush the patient to the hospital and revive them from the situation. They have collaborated with Kolkata Police to initiate this awareness to the maximum extent possible.
