June 13, 2021

LAHORE : The Director General Punjab Emergency Service Dr Rizwan Naseer performed the closing ceremony of rescuers promotion course at Emergency Services Academy (ESA) here on Saturday.

He said 12 weeks long promotion course was organised to enhance the professional capacity, growth and development of junior management. The role of junior managers is very important as they are directly in contact with the emergency staff and in-charge of an emergency response unit.

The professional grooming of middle managers, their understanding of the standard operating procedures (sops) for the field rescue operations, managerial and leadership skills are highly essential to ensure the uniform standard of the service.

He shared these views while addressing the closing ceremony of the lead rescuers promotion course held at managers training center of emergency services academy here on Saturday. Registrar academy, Dr M Farhan Khalid & DD (HR) Dr Foaad Shahzad Mirza, a team of instructors from the emergency services academy attended the ceremony.

While speaking at the ceremony, DG Rescue Punjab Dr Rizwan Naseer congratulated them on the successful completion of the promotion course. He further said the process of promotion courses was impossible to start without amendment in Punjab emergency service bill. He congratulated all lead rescuers passing out and explained the service structure provided by the Punjab emergency services (amendment) bill 2021. It had passed due to the services rendered by the rescuers across Punjab.

Now, rescue staff would be provided with timely promotion and this promotion course has been organized in that context for capacity building of the middle managers. He directed the successful participants of the course to utilize professional skills learnt in this course in real operations as much as possible, and maintained physical fitness as there is no compromise on physical fitness. A physically fit manager can be a role model for his staff and can do quickly and right decision in case of emergency and disaster, he said.

Earlier, Dr Farhan Khalid registrar emergency services academy welcomed DG Rescue Punjab and all participants of the course. He thanked DG Rescue for his untiring efforts for unanimously passed emergency services amendments bill and providing a long-awaited service structure to the rescuers.
