Station 37, Jeffreys Bay, had their Induction Training Session for new recruits and trainees on Saturday 18 February. During the day they also assisted a young lady who had cut her foot on the beach.The induction session was structured to provide all attendees with a better understanding of the operating principles of the NSRI, as well as to provide them with some practical experience with the rescue equipment.The session kicked off with a short theory introduction on the background and history of Sea Rescue, base operations, radio & medical equipment, as well as our rescue craft.The attendees were then introduced to our Rescue Quad Bike & Rescue WaveRunners, before being divided into two teams and given a challenge with a stokes basket.This was followed by a demonstrated launch of our Rescue WaveRunner and a ±250m swim to behind the ‘back-line’, where all attendees waited in the ‘huddle position’, until such time as they were picked-up one at a time by our Rescue WaveRunner and brought back to shore.On our way back to the Base, we came across a group of people who needed urgent assistance. One lady in the group, an exchange student from Germany, cut her foot very badly on a piece of glass. We provided basic first-aid, before assisting her into our Stokes Basket and carrying her to the car park, where we were met by 24/7 Paramedics, who transported her to hospital.After all this excitement, it was time to head back to Base for a proper cleaning & maintenance session, before enjoying well-deserved boerewors rolls and cold drinks!!
