ZARA TANZANIA ADVENTURES ORGANIZES FIRST AID TRAINING FOR 50 MOUNT KILIMANJARO GUIDES


 
Zara Tanzania Adventures continues to blaze the trail as East Africa’s leading Mt. Kilimanjaro Outfitter and Safari Company. Zara Organized a three day First Aid course for 50 Mountain guides that was concluded on Thursday 23 May 2018. In efforts to provide a safer and more sustainable Mt. Kilimanjaro trek for clients globally. As pro-sustainability organization, Zara believes in taking responsibility for the well being of its clients, the environment and the community at large.
During the certification ceremony which was preceded by a remarkable tree planting ceremony in the Kilimanjaro National Park forest Mrs Zainab Ansell explained;

“The reason for facilitating this training is simple; It saves lives. First aid training will provide our Mountain guides with the confidence and capability to react immediately to any incident, injury or illness.
In the event of any unforeseen medical emergency. When properly trained, a guide can administer basic medical treatment or CPR (as needed). Research proves that CPR aid provided during critical and life-threatening accidents, injuries or health complications saves lives.



Considering the high altitudes of the mountain, it is only responsible to ensure that our team is proactive and professional in any given circumstances. While first aid kits will have what is needed, being trained to administer first aid enables the team to know and understand exactly how to respond to a medical emergency and also to know exactly what should be in the first aid kit.
Mt. Kilimanjaro is Africa’s leading tourist attraction, being the highest point in Africa, and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. This training provides an added advantage to future trekkers. Being able to administer life-saving medical treatments allows both the team and the clients to stay calm and confident during an emergency and buy time until first responders arrive.”
