The NRCS branch is going to station teams of health workers at six locations from Jadibuti to Sanga along the Araniko Highway to render first aid treatment to the road accident victims on the spot, according to branch president Manoj Kumar Thapa. 

The branch is planning to depute at least 100 trained volunteers to that end. 

The first aid providers’ team will include locals, Nepal Army (NA) personnel, traffic police, students and Red Cross representatives. 

The NRCS has already started training them, it is learnt.
