Kuya Daniel Razon widens rescue efforts with Tulong Muna Bago Pasada
Three years after he launched the country’s pioneering news and rescue advocacy, Tulong Muna Muna Bago Balita, Kuya Daniel Razon is starting another life-saving initiative dubbed Tulong Muna Bago Pasada.
In cooperation with Philippine Red Cross, the advocacy aims to involve taxi drivers in public service by rendering first-aid applications and rescue operations during road accidents.
“Kung lahat po ng taxi drivers na gaya po ninyo ay makapag-train ay magiging safer ang ating kalsada. Mas magiging ligtas. Dahil alam ko po at naniniwala po ako na sa pagkaalam n’yo po ng mga kalaaman tungkol sa pagre-rescue ay magiging mas disiplinado kayo sa pagmamaneho,” Kuya Daniel shared his thoughts on the new project in one episode of his radio program, Dear Kuya, aired over UNTV Radio La Verdad 1350 khz.
According to the pioneers based on UNTV Station, the first batch of the “Basic Life Support” training has started. It incorporates role-playing activities so that the participants could think and act correctly and instantly on the possible scenarios. Upon the completion of the course, the participants will be awarded with certificate that allows them to conduct first aid and/or rescue operations.
Any time soon, the community will be expecting cab drivers who do not know only how to drive but also how to rescue and render genuine public service through the leadership of Kuya Daniel.
