Wilderness hosted their local ER unit doctor, Dr Gustav Lemke, from George Hospital, at their rescue base for training last night.
Torsten Henschel reports,'We covered drowning emergency response, CPR and AED simulations using dummies of adults and children to give all our crew and trainees a final refresher as the holiday season is upon us.
'Dr Lemke brought along 4 paramedics from Eden 911, ably led by Claire, who provided case studies and practical hints based on their experience.
'At Wilderness NSRI we are most grateful for the relationships we have with our local emergency care personnel and services, which allow emergency responses to be well integrated and effective, and provide opportunities for cross-training.'
'We wish all visitors to our area and its beautiful beaches a safe holiday. Please be sure to check out the video on rip currents and put your local Sea Rescue emergency number into your cell phone before visiting the beach.
