UoN students to be trained on security, disaster response

21 May 2015, 16:15 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - University of Nairobi (UoN) Vice Chancellor Peter Mbithi Wednesday said that the institution will soon engage the Kenya Red Cross Society (KRCS), UoN Chapter in developing an awareness programme on disaster management and security.

Speaking when the team paid him a courtesy call, the VC challenged them to influence the mindset of other students to engage in productive activities and contribute to community service and development.

“Please identify university activities you can take part in and you will get support from the university management,” Mbithi said.

The team’s officials asked for sponsorship to help them train members on first aid and disaster response at the university.

“We have been at the forefront of responding to national crisis, conducting first aid training and running blood donation drives and with your support we will do more,” the team’s chairlady, Trizah Njeri said.

This comes after the launch of compulsory anti-terrorism courses for students joining universities from September to help curb terror attacks targeting the learning institutions.

The courses were launched barely a month after Al Shabaab militants attacked Garissa University College and killed 142 students and six security officers.

The institutions said the courses will help students prepare adequately for disaster and terror attacks as terrorists have shifted their targets to learning institutions.
