The Central Labs Directorate in the Deanship of Academic Support Services organized a training workshop for Central Laboratories staff and some other invited participants from the other departments such as Security and Safety Unit, Deanship of Quality Assurance, Institutional Effectiveness and Accreditation and staff from Research Labs about the National Emergency Response Volunteer Program (SANID). The program was for four days (from Sunday December 25th to Wednesday December 28th 2016).
This training aimed to train the participants on how to respond in case of emergencies, disasters and fires. The program imparts practical and theoretical knowledge to those who wish to join the National Emergency Response Volunteer team, or just learn how to respond in an emergency.
SANID is a voluntary program in the UAE and involves expert trainers. It works in cooperation with the National Crisis and Emergency Management Authority (NCEMA), the Civil Contingencies Agency of the Defense Ministry of Sweden and the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT).
