THE ST JOHN’S Ambulance Association is hoping to teach hundreds of Barbadians basic first aid skills which can be used in the aftermath of a disaster.Commander Rodney Yarde said yesterday that his organisation had been working to achieve this objective.“Recently we have been working on a project funded by our sister organisation in Germany to teach 1 800 Barbadians basic first aid in the aftermath of a disaster,” he told the congregation at the James Street Methodist church. He said that the organisation was as relevant today as it was in 1942.Yarde added that the St John’s Ambulance Association was still rendering service at many public events and working with young people.Following the service, the Association’s members held a march through Bridgetown.
