Is Basic First Aid Good Enough?
Are we trained to handle an emergency? Will our basic first aid support life until the life flight or higher trained personnel arrive? What if we are hours from help or on a remote island? If close enough to shore, is the local EMS trained to recognize dive related injuries? All of these questions will be answered in this seminar.
