Reacting quickly with just a handful of untrained volunteers, Jay Nepal was able to demolish 104 structures and save many lives. It was apparent that a professional training course had to be set-up, not only to protect the volunteers but to prepare them to react to future disasters.
Jay Nepal aims to train and form a “Volunteer Rescue Corps” capable to be deployed IN ACTION when needed. Selected volunteers, already involved in demolitions since the very first days of the emergency, are now training to become proficient rescue men. Headed by Alessandro Molinari, the first official professional training program began in July. This first course originated a first Rescue Corp group of Jay Nepal composed mainly of young trainees with a good knowledge of the different rescue techniques. A second round continued in October with an advanced training in first aid, technical equipment and advanced life support.
