​Pakistan Life Savers Programme (PLSP)

​At CETE, we believe in rallying the community toward emergency preparedness at large.

Our flagship 'Pakistan Life Savers Programme (PLSP)' is based on partnerships between academia, health and education sector, and government and is catalyzed by a small secretariat based at the CETE. The programme's primary goal is to​​ transform Pakistan into a nation of empowered citizens with basic skills to save lives. Through this programme, we aim to train 10 million Pakistani citizens and help them acquire basic life-saving skills of CPR and Bleeding Control

So far, over 250,000 Pakistani citizens have been trained as Life Savers!
