The Kuwaiti Ministry of Health said on Sunday a new group of emergency paramedics had completed a training course on major accidents.
The course, which was supervised by British advisors, is part of the ministry’s courses held by the ministry on a yearly basis, the ministry’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Department chief Dr. Faisal al-Ghanim told KUNA.
The course, involving 24 EMS paramedics, includes theoretical and practical aspects for enabling them to acquire fresh skills for tackling major accidents, he said.
It represents the third advanced stage for training medics in how to rescue those injured in serious accidents, like car accidents, he added.
At least one person is killed and three-four others wounded in car and motorcycle accidents in Kuwait on a daily basis.
