The Ashanti Regional office of the Ghana Red Cross Society is set to train 100 Journalists in the region on first aid.
The training scheduled for May 7, 2016 is aimed at equipping Journalists with skills on how to save lives in their quest to cover campaigns ahead of November elections.
In an interview with Ultimate news, the Ashanti Regional Manager of the Society, Kwame Asante, explained that the training has been scheduled to coincide with the World Red Cross Day celebrations.
He encouraged Journalists to cease the opportunity offered them to make time out of their busy schedule to learn basic first aid maneuvers at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
‘We want to train media men in first aid, so that as they go about their duties helping this year’s election campaigns in case of any accident or emergencies they will have the requisite knowledge to attend to such situations. We are encouraging all media persons to participate fully so that if nothing at all, they can protect themselves,’ he said.
