Picture 1'Twice a year Station 11 Port Alfred host students from Stenden University (in Port Alfred), who are studying B.Com Disaster Management, visit our station for three practices. The idea is for these students to learn more about what it is that the NSRI does and where we as an organisation would fit in with regards to rendering assistance during disasters.As part of the visit, we do some very basic training scenarios with them too. Last night we taught them about casualties in cold water. Signs and symptoms, safety factors, how to approach the casualty, trying to avoid getting into the water and rather using other items to get the person out of the water.The Stenden students in this session were: Henry van Pletzen, Luvuyo Ngene, Sinoyolo Jantjies, Emma Chapman, and Bongani Bavuma.'
