Challenge

Program will train 50 youth to become 'First-Responder Youth Brigade' in each node of Navi Mumbai starting with Airoli node. Navi Mumbai-Uran-Thane belt is in an earthquake zone-3 area; besides it is densely populated by people & industries that may result in man-made disasters too. Untrained bystander & rescuer is unable or unwilling to help hapless victims of any disaster leading to preventable death. Many women/children are main casualties in most disasters, calling for immediate ERT programs

Solution

50 Youth from each node of Navi Mumbai would be trained to learn ABCs of First-Aid, Effective CPR, & Emergency Response techniques & be a part of First-Responder 'Youth Brigade' in that node. 'Youth Brigade' shall attend to casualties during the Golden Minutes of an incident. Women & children are major casualties in any disaster; women would be trained in ERT that would help them save their kith/kin too. Emergency Response training at an young age would be an Asset, for life-long, to save lives

Long-Term Impact

Program will empower, educate & train a '50 member Youth Brigade' in Emergency Response. In any disaster, a few bystanders though aware of first-aid are not forthcoming due to fear of medico-legal cases & a few others for want of professional training. Our program would address both. There will be immense impact in the long term in our Mission #SaveLifeAroundYou. Even a family can be saved from becoming pauper by saving life of a bread-earner-victim. This project will have +ve catalytic effect
