A four-day Medical First Responder Seminar (MFRS) conducted by the US Embassy ended in

Rajshahi on Thursday. 

Ten officers of Rajshahi Fire Service and Civil Defense (FSCD) Division participated in the seminar.

Participants conducted practical exercises, and each received an emergency first-aid kit with medical supplies sourced from Bangladesh.

Since the start of the programme in 2014, more than 620 first responders across Bangladesh have participated in the programme.

The MFRS is one of many initiatives of the US government during this 50th anniversary of Bangladesh independence.
