Surfers learn res­cue skills

North Coast Weekender - - News -

LO­CAL surfers brushed up on their res­cue skills at Mul­laloo Beach ear­lier this month.

The Surfers Res­cue 365 pro­gram saw a large group of par­tic­i­pants take part in a one-hour ses­sion learn­ing and prac­tis­ing dif­fer­ent re­sponse and board res­cue tech­niques, both on the beach and in the wa­ter.

They then moved to the Mul­laloo Surf Life Sav­ing Club where they were taken through a two-hour ses­sion of ba­sic first aid, CPR, bleed­ing and shock man­age­ment and de­fib­ril­la­tion and tourni­quet tech­niques.
