26 April 2010 - The 2-day state competition ended yesterday. Actually I should be going as a spectator but I ended up being a steward for the cadet team. Nevermind, here are some updates for day 1 of the competition.
Registration started as early as 10am. Then it was speech by Sir Kevin Peter. Stretcher Drill or Kawad Usungan will be implemented from new year onwards, so our division was selected to demonstrate it.
It was taught by Yoong Xiang's dad, Mr Wong Seng Kin. He said the main reason of implementing this was because some of the members don't even know how to transport the casualty using stretcher during events or duties.
This drill is mainly for the Ambulance Adult and Cadet team as the nursing are not going to be involved.
There were many members and outsiders recording and snapping photos. At least 5 to 8 were recording the whole process. Too bad for those who didn't record.
After written test and uniform checking was footdrill session. 3 teams for the adult category whereas 6 teams for the cadet. Our division's performance was not so bad after all.
5pm concluded day 1 and we went back to La Salle center after that.
