Training kits donated
Brisbane Water Marine Watch has donated two training kits valued at $698 and $717 to Marine Rescue Central Coast.
One kit (red) contains realistic simulation material for wounds and broken bones.
The other kit (green) donated earlier includes oxygen and other aids to enable advanced resuscitation.
The donated kits are expected to assist in ensuring reality for First Aid training and help satisfy the requirements of the new First Aid competencies required of Marine Rescue crews.
All the volunteer members of Marine Rescue must have a current Advanced First Aid certificate.
The money is from funds that, in previous years, were used to host the Putt Putt Regatta.
Marine Watch is no longer directly involved with that event.
