Sum-ag Sangguniang Kabataan chairman Jason Villarosa recently launched Yes Bacolod, a purok-based Youth Emergency System where the youth volunteers will be trained to respond immediately to all forms of emergencies and incidents happening in their area.
Villarosa said he has tapped several barangay chairmen from barangays in Bacolod who will undergo trainings/seminars after they conducted one in Brgy. Sum-ag, recently. The training will be conducted by the Regional Office of Civil Defense headed by Bob Nuñez.
Members of Yes Bacolod will undergo cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), first aid, and other trainings to equip them to assist or handle emergency situations.
They will also have a control center manned by a help assist person in charge, who will receive calls and contact private volunteer groups in cases of emergency, he said.
Villarosa said Yes Bacolod is his second project as SK chairman. The first was Wow Ang Plastic Mo which is the first environmental project of the SK Council of Sum-ag where they plan to put up a giant Christmas tree made out of plastic bottles.
This will become a tourist attraction in Brgy. Sum-ag, he said.
They have a fan page for Yes Bacolod and their Facebook account is “Villarosa Jason”, he added.*
