Serdang, 27 September - Perpustakaan Sultan Abdul Samad Library (PSAS) organized an "Emergency Response Team (ERT) Course" held at the Termasa Room, PSAS and was attended by 50 ERT PSAS members.

This course was organized to meet the requirements which requires ERT Team members to undergo emergency training before the Building Evacuation Training (Fire Drill) is held. In particular, this course aims to improve the competence of the ERT Team members in dealing with emergency cases such as fire extinguishers, medical first aid and emergency communication techniques.

At the beginning of the course, three officers from the University Health Center (PKU), UPM brief and guide the ERT members on the proper techniques on providing first aid and how to perform "Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation" (CPR). This training is important for the ERT members to help save victims who are facing emergency situations before the arrival of medical personnel.
