China trains 200 emergency responders for Mongolia
(ECNS) — China on Tuesday held online training courses for 200 Mongolian rescuers in Hohhot, north China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, to bolster the country’s emergency response capabilities. .
Four online trainings are planned within two months. Mongolian trainees will study online first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, trauma care, accidental injuries, common emergencies and other theoretical courses. Practical online training and an interactive assessment will also be conducted.
It is very necessary to organize a cross-border training course for emergency medical workers, said N. Bolormaa, secretary general of the Mongolian Red Cross. They can provide emergency medical care in time before medical professionals arrive, save the lives of the injured and sick, prevent injuries from worsening and reduce medical costs, he added.
On the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Mongolia in 2019, China pledged to perform 3,000 cataract restoration operations for Mongolians over the next five years, treat 200 Mongolian children with congenital heart disease, train 1,000 emergency medical workers and support the construction of its emergency care stations and volunteer rescue teams.
