This research aims to assess the effect of lecture on the knowledge and skills among tanods in the first aid management of the common emergency case in selected barangays in the Municipality of Lakewood. Respondents were obtained through convenience sampling. The study used a pre and post interventional research design which measures the knowledge and skills of the twenty-nine respondents who were tanods employed in Barangay Gatub, Tubod, Lukuan, Biswangan and Poblacion in the Municipality of Lakewood. The knowledge of the respondents was evaluated before and two months after the first aid lecture utilizing a 15 item self-administered questionnaire. Data for knowledge items were analyzed using Mc Nemars P-value which in summary demonstrated a non significant increase in the correct response two months after the intervention. Generally, renders the lecture ineffective. The respondents skills were assumed negative before the intervention since all of them did not underwent similar training. Paired t-test was used to evaluate the mean skills score of the respondents. Two months after the intervention, it shows that majority of the tanods only retained their skills on 2-person-seat carry, 3-person carry; arm, hand and chest bandaging. Though the intervention on first aid failed to increase the knowledge of the respondents, some of their skills were somehow maintained.
