Samson Tiara Resumes First Aid & Firefighting CSR Programme for High School (SMA / SMK) Students

Samson Tiara is delighted to announce the resumption of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme which aims to provide participating high school students essential knowledge and skills in basic first aid and firefighting.

Recognising the importance of equipping the youth of today with the necessary knowledge to respond to emergencies and to be proactive members of their community, we are eager to resume this programme that was unfortunately paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Educational, Social & Community Benefits

Through the learning of basic first aid skills, students have the potential to make a significant difference in the event of an emergency. During this programme, students will learn how to respond appropriately to incidents or accidents, such as performing CPR, controlling bleeding, treating burns, and aiding a choking victim. These skills can be applied to a range of situations, including sports injuries, car accidents, mishaps around the house or workplace, and even natural disasters. By learning these skills, students can become more confident and capable if confronted with an emergency and can potentially save the lives of those around them.

Basic firefighting and fire safety are also valuable skills for students to learn. In the event of a fire, knowing how to use an available fire extinguisher properly can be the difference between a small fire and a major disaster. It can also provide valuable awareness of potential fire hazards around the home, school, or workplace, so that appropriate mitigation efforts can be taken. During this programme, students will learn to identify the different types of fires, the appropriate extinguisher to use for each, and the correct technique to operate a fire extinguisher effectively. By learning these skills, students can help prevent fires they may encounter from spreading and causing further damage.

Through participation in this programme, it is our firm belief that students will not only develop the skills to potentially save lives and prevent injuries, but that it will also help them develop important life skills; skills such as problem solving, communication, teamwork, and leadership. Students will learn how to work together to respond to emergency situations, effectively communicate, and take on leadership roles in high-stress situations.

An additional benefit of this programme, we believe, is its potential to help build the confidence and resilience of participating students. Through learning how to respond to relatively common emergency situations, the participants can feel more in control and better prepared for unexpected events. This can, potentially, lead to an increase in self-esteem and a sense of empowerment, both of which can have proven positive effects on both mental health and overall wellbeing.

At Samson Tiara we have a firm commitment to improving the safety and general well-being of our community and we believe that this programme is a valuable contribution towards achieving this. Through the improvement of the safety knowledge of youth today, we create a safer tomorrow.
