FRIP is frequently approached by diverse members of society to design a course specific to their needs and requirements. For example we conducted a workshop for the students and staff of IBA on safety, awareness, response and dealing with an emergency situation on campus (see it here). Similarly, factory owners approach FRIP to design a course for the safety and quick response for their workers.
FRIP first studies the workers’ environment, risks and hazards and then proceeds with developing a course that is most appropriate and easily understood. Our latest ventures include a 4-day training course at the APPNA Institute of Public Health for EMT students at Jinnah Sindh Medical University, Karachi.
In 2015, we also launched a Places of Worship project in light of recent attacks on churches and mosques in Pakistan. We aim to train the scouts and the administrative staff to be prepared for, prevent and manage emergency situations. A successful pilot workshop took place at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in March and we hope to continue reaching out to others.
