Staff and managers at theReef Resort in East End hope they don’t ever have to put their new training to use. But rest assured if an emergency should arise then visitors will be in good hands.
Representatives from all departments continue to take part in emergency first response courses offered by Red Sail Water Sports first responder instructors Steve Foster, Travis Danley, Rachael Williams and Doug Oehl. The first response course offers extensive CPR and first aid training. It covers automated external defibrillator usage, shock management, serious bleeding and spinal and bone immobilisation.
Course instructors use a series of real-life scenarios covering several illnesses and accidents that can occur every day to build participants’ confidence in their ability to provide care.
Those who complete the day-long course are certified as emergency first responders prepared and skilled to assist anyone who may need medical attention.
