First Aid stations will be set up by the Philippine Red Cross in Boracay Island during the Holy Week.
According to Red Cross Malay-Boracay Chapter Staff Nurse, John Patrick Moreno, the purpose of the First Aid stations is to respond to the first aid needs of tourists.
Several First Aid stations will be set up at Boracay’s beachfront, aside from the posting of Red Cross life guards.
There will also be two (2) First Aid stations at the considered number one shopping destination of Boracay, D’Mall. Two to three nurses will be posted at the area.
The schedule of service will be from eight (8am) in the morning until five (5pm) in the afternoon, from Holy Wednesday, until Easter Sunday.
Meanwhile, the Red Cross Youth-In-Charge Janna Marasigan encouraged vacationers who are feeling dizzy, experiencing body pain, and stricken by heat stroke due to the hot weather to go to their first aid stations.
In addition, all trained volunteers of the Red Cross who are willing to help and are free during the activity are being called upon by the agency to render service.
