5. Guidelines to Borrowing First Aid Kits

Below is the new Guidelines to borrowing First Aid Kits, issued by the First Aid Club.

Please remember that the emergency cases should really be emergencies and not just because they forgot to apply for it.


In lieu of recent happenings, the first aid club has decided to keep some of the kits due to irresponsible borrowing.

1) We will keep 3 kits (K1, K2, and K3). These are fully stocked kits. To borrow these kits for ANY EVENTS, you will have to

a) Apply for them 2 days prior to the event. The application form can be obtained from Aznah, in the SSD Department OR from the SRC.

b) Once filled, please return the forms to Aznah.

We will process the forms and hand out the kits personally to you.

2) However, in cases of EMERGENCY, there will be 2 other kits in the SAD Store Room. These kits are stocked with the bare necessities for any emergency cases. To borrow these kits, you have to

a) Inform Aznah.

b) Write down your details in this Log Book.

c) As soon as the emergency is dealt with, RETURN THE KITS.

We are very sorry for the inconveniences caused, but this is the only way where we can accurately track down the kits, and their borrowers.

Any inquiries should be directed to:

That's all the announcements for now so until next time, hope you're all doing great and take care!


More of an experiment with google calendar than a functional app. Anyways, i'll try to update it, but just click here.


So, this is where i've decided to create M209's blog. hmm... Apparently it's used to update you all with announcements and all, and of course random posts from random people are welcomed. Anyone wanna share anything about orientation??

Either way, this should prove to be an intriguing place, it IS my first time managing a blog... So any help/advice is extremely welcomed! :D
