From Pat Lowry:
Another successful night of CPR/AED training. Once again, a very keen and eager bunch. We should once again thank Victor Shine for the use of the coast guard station which was a fantastic facility. Top notch nosh (say that fast) came from my lovely wife, Denise and thanks also to Adrian Bishop (other instructor) for giving me a big hand out.
Things are really taking shape now to make our little Myrtleville swimming community a safer place to be. 24 People in total now trained on CPR/AED and choking for both adult and child. This is in addition to the already local voluntary personnel in the area.
Depending on numbers I would hope to do one more training night before Xmas. By this I mean that if I don’t have enough to fill a full class I’d like to run a refresher night purely on the skills that were taught before we move on any further. Because of the amount of questions and information passed on in both courses, I felt that those already trained up could do with a little more practice on skills alone. This would consist of: I would set up in a room with a manikin and rescuers would come and practice under supervision. It would take no more than 20 minutes per person.
If anyone is interested in a place on the next course and you have not already done so, let Damian know – firstname.lastname@example.org. There are seven names down already.
