MUMBLES ROWING CLUB BLOG POST 2015

A dummies guide to first aid!

A big thank you to Steve.C for organising, and to Russ from CRT Medical, for enduring a day at the boat shed with a group of enthusiastic coaches and  rowers on the recent first aid day.  The day course was run mainly as a preventative measure and to help keep our 100% safety record intact.  The basics of resuscitation were covered along with specific water related scenarios and modern day ailments that may present a problem whilst out at sea.  The 'Charlie the choker' dummy was a favourite and adopted as the mascot for the day, much fun and food for thought was had by all.
