What a week – Rescues to First Aid!

26th October 2009

Save our Seas Shark Centre staff training pays dividends Terry and Zanele underwent two days of First Aid training with EMT (Emergency Rescue Training); and little did they know how soon their training would be put into practice.

As a public venue we are often the first call – be it a seal rescue, a whale beaching or in this case a gent that had dislocated his shoulder. We responded to all of the above; Monday – a seal rescue, Tuesday – alerted to the Orca that had beached on Sunset Beach, Milnerton and then the real first aid call on Thursday. What a week!

Rest assured, we take our roles very seriously and will continue to do so.
