This post is first in a series of many that will include photos and rescue tips from our first EMR training conducted in Lashio, Myanmar, Dec 27, 2015 to Jan 3, 2016, to a group of over 50 eager volunteers, along with our new team members. We are in the process of establishing Myanmar Free Ambulance in the upper regions of Myanmar, and this was our first emergency response training for locals, conducted by an expert team of professionals from the United States. Doctor Michael Duehrssen was our lead instructor, along with Brock Mayer (Paramedic) and a number of EMTs and first responders. The team was wonderful, and we are looking forward to partnering with them in providing more advanced training to our local Myanmar staff and volunteers in the coming years.

In this series we will try to highlight the best shots, and point out a number of good tips along the way as well. We will also be posting photos from our first search and recovery dive training for our local team soon as well. So for now, here are a few photos from the opening moments of Crossfire’s EMR training. Enjoy!
