AED (defibrillator) refresher training

AED (defibrillator) refresher training

On 3rd May several members attended an AED (defibrillator) refresher/training session.

A short theory presentation explained how and why we should use an AED and we then got down on the floor to attend to ‘Annie’ and give her some basic life support and help with a training AED.

Our branch is lucky to own a ‘live’ AED which we have available on Club nights and other trips.

We are also able to practice with the training AED.

Get in touch with any of the Committee if you would like the opportunity to familiarise with the working of the AED.

Congratulations to SVSAC 30 years diving together.

We have all returned from our trip to Red Sea South. Joining our boat The Hurricane on 4th October we set off for diving the many reefs of St John’s, Fury Shoal, Elphinstone returning to UK early on 12th.

Well looked after by the staff of Hurricane and dive guide Halmosh and Waheed.

Many thanks for Dave King for organising.

We look forward to viewing the fabulous photos and videos.

10 things to do if you want to go on a SVSAC dive trip

  1. Ask organiser if you are qualified to safely go on the trip. You may need to check with our Dive Officer.
  2. Book time off work.
  3. Find out who else is going on the dive.
  4. Work out how to get there and back i.e car share, plane etc.
  5. Work out accommodation-usually NOT included.
  6. See if there is any special training needed and if so do you have time to do it ?
  7. Notify organiser and pay a non returnable deposit usually about 1/3rd of full cost.
  8. About 6 weeks before you go pay rest of money owed for trip. If you cannot go TELL ORGANISER STRAIGHT AWAY it is your responsibility to fill your space or risk losing your money.
  9. Dive and get fit to dive well for the trip, test out all equipment.
  10. Pack and go.
