Rescue scouts camp begins


The Community Safety Wing of the Emergency Services Department (ESD) has launched a Rescue Scouts Summer Camp at the Emergency Services Academy (ESA).

The camp aims to equip students with lifesaving skills and foster responsible citizenship.

Dr Rizwan Naseer, Secretary of ESD, emphasized the camp’s purpose: “We aim to train enthusiastic students to become lifesavers and rescue scouts by learning practical skills during this summer camp.”

Deeba Shahnaz, Head of Community Safety & Information, welcomed students from Lahore, Rahim Yar Khan, Multan, and Peshawar, who registered through an online dashboard.

She commended their motivation to participate, especially those traveling from remote areas of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

“I believe our team of instructors will ensure high-quality training. By the end of this week-long camp, you will be confident enough to save lives and promote safety,” she stated.

Deeba further highlighted the pioneering nature of the Rescue Scouts Summer Camp.

“Although this is a week-long activity, the Community Safety Wing will welcome other interested students for future sessions during the summer vacations.

The best-performing participants will also be selected for advanced training.”

Participants will undergo both theoretical and practical training from Rescue trainers on various modules, including essential lifesaving skills such as CPR and bleeding control, first aid, fire safety, road safety, health and hygiene, and the Clean and Green Pakistan initiative.

The training will also include exposure to height rescue techniques and swimming on purpose-built simulators at the Emergency Services Academy.
