Spotlight on Emergency First Response
No one ever expects or wants to deal with an accident but life tends to throw these at you at the most inconvenient and unexpected times... one incident I dealt with was at the checkout in Welcome of all places, a woman collapsed in front of me and was not breathing, unfortunately not swooned by my magnetic charms - would you know what to do?
CPR and First Aid skills are not only essential in the unlikely event of a diving accident but also great life skills to have full stop! The Emergency First Response Courses offer a convenient and fun way to learn these skills in a friendly environment focused on your specific needs.
Over the years many of our students have told us of similar experiences - a great feeling knowing you helped someone, when they needed it!

In case you were wondering the woman in Welcome made a full recovery and the simple act of opening her airway was all that was needed to get her breathing again...
