It also aims to provide basic knowledge on first aid, get close and interact with officials from the Red Crescent Association, help plan weekly gatherings and share and exchange experiences with those who have expertise in first aid.
Following their registrations, the participants were briefed by Head of Uniform Team Section, Department of Co-Curriculum, Cikgu Jalil Pengarah Hj Kapitan.
