The Governor of Punjab, Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar on Friday launched the Rescue Cadet Corps (RCC) mobile application to promote safety and rescue culture in the said province.
The launching ceremony was hosted at Governor House Lahore and was graced by DG Rescue Punjab Dr. Rizwan Naseer along with senior officers of Headquarters and Academy, Regional Emergency Officers, Chairman PITB, Director General, and PITB Team who are responsible for the development of the RCC App were also present at the event.
As per the details, the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) in collaboration with the Punjab Emergency Service (PES) has developed the RCC application.
According to the tweet by the Punjab information technology board, the RCC mobile app will enable to “connect all Rescue Scouts (volunteers) of communities and educational institutions for online registrations, training, and certification after hands-on drills practices in colleges and nearest Rescue Stations.”
The RCC application is created to provide online training sessions to rescue scouts for the task of saving lives and promoting safety in the youth. The training received from RCC is in the same line as the National Cadet Corps (NCC).
Moreover, the RCC application will also turn out to be the means of connecting volunteers from various communities for online registrations, training, and certifications after firsthand drills at their nearby rescue stations.
Previously, Dr. Rizwan Naseer has spoken about the Rescue Cadet Corps and informed that after the successful inauguration of CERTs across Punjab, Rescue has planned to provide training of the first aider in every home, and to the young generation in colleges and universities to promote the qualities of social responsibilities.
