Red Cross conducts training at Black Orchid Restaurant& Lounge


With the intent of putting safety first, The Belize Red Cross San Pedro Branch conducted a Basic First Aid training exercise. The training took place on Tuesday March 29th at Black Orchid Restaurant and had the participation of staff from several businesses, including restaurants and resorts. Upon the completion of the course, each participant was given a certificate of completion in basic first aid. Chris Berry and Jermaine Santos of Belmopan and Belize City were the volunteer facilitators for the event, and they provided first aid and CPR training to the participants.
Amongst the group that received certification in Basic First Aid were staff members of Victoria House Resort, The Phoenix Resort, Red Ginger Restaurant, Caribbean Villas, Cowboy Doug’s Bar and Grill, and South Ambergris Caye Neighborhood Watch.
