Medical Emergency at Sea
What do we do? What do we ask?
If you boat, you should be current in First Aid, CPR/AED! If you aren’t, then now is the time to take a class, because stuff happens on boats; just sayin.
I’m often asked how do I remember all the questions and checks for a sudden illness event? Well the simple answer is because it’s my job as a trainer and provider. I do it all the time so it’s become part of my DNA.
For the rest of you, I’ve uploaded a simple list you can download for your First Aid kits. Print it and place a copy or two in your kit.
