Rangers from the Ministry of Environment have received first aid training from experts to assist themselves and others while in the field, Keo Sopheak, the Mondulkiri provincial director of the Environment Department said.

He said 50 rangers received two days of training from a specialist team at the Cambodian Red Cross.

The participants, roughly half of his total rangers, practised snake bite treatment, poisoning and first aid for drowning victims as well as wound dressing and CPR. ‘The first aid training is important. It will help them to treat themselves and those who live around the wildlife sanctuary when they go into the forest,’ Sopheak said.
