(in front of Arellano High School)
CKERF is recipient of Rotary Matching Grant
The Rotary Club of Downtown Manila, in cooperation with the Rotary Club
of Changi (Singapore) and the Rotary Foundation (United States), joined
hands in a Matching Grant Project. The total grant was awarded to the
Co Kim Eh Rescue Foundation in 2003 and was used to acquire the "Rotary
Mobile Rescue Response Vehicle," along with hydraulic cutting tools (aka
"Jaws of Life") and other equipment deemed necessary to enable forcible
entry and emergency rescue operations.
CKERF thanks RCDM, RC Changi and the Rotary Foundation for this Grant,
and hopes that the next two phases of the project (rescue air bags and
thermal imager) can also be implemented soon. As of now, all the
equipment that were bought from the funds have already seen action, and
all of our members have been trained in their use.

Co Kim Eh Rescue Foundation started operating in the new millennium, even
before it was officially incorporated and registered with the SEC. Many of
its original members and today's core personnel came from the South San
Nicolas Volunteer Fire Prevention Association, the first volunteer fire
brigade in the Philippines. There was a need to commence operations because
South San Nicolas was undecided regarding the support of an emergency
medical services section, and none of the volunteer fire brigades in Manila
could provide round-the-clock EMS. Up to now, CKE Foundation is the only
fire brigade that provides this service in Manila, supported by online
medical direction, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
CKE Foundation is a modern, progressive and updated fire, search and rescue,
and emergency medical service organization that utilizes the most contemporary
techniques, equipment and technology to provide both volunteer and
contracted firefighting, fire protection, search & rescue, EMS, first
aid and patient transport services throughout Metro Manila. It trains
and educates its own personnel, personnel from other emergency service
organizations, and even corporate personnel. All obtained contributions
go back to capital expenditures and operating expenses, thus ensuring
continuous improvements to the service.
Whether fire, accident or disaster, CKE will be here for you, with
Complete Knowledge in Emergencies.
|Co Kim Eh (CKE) Rescue Foundation aims to be Metro Manila's
premier volunteer firefighting, emergency medical services and search and rescue
organization. We will do this by continuous upgrade of skills, recruitment and
retention of capable volunteer personnel, networking with other firefighting, EMS and
search and rescue organizations, and actual experience in emergency situations.|
