St Johns Ambulance

Tids and Ash recently hosted St Johns ambulance at the club, who bought some of their younger members to get an experience of the work of Beach Lifeguards.

 22 members of the Transition group completed their 2-day Young Life Savers Award.

Learning how to deal with drowning and injured casualties along  our coast lines, they strapped
each other to a spine board, practiced CPR and learnt how to apply a FracPack, using each other
as very willing models.
They then braved the wild weather out on the beach to learn new lifesaving games, learn how to dive under waves without being knocked over (so they know how to get to their casualties) and practice their new found skills!
They ended with a presentation where Alicia received the first ever Young Life Saver Awareness Award that Exmouth Lifeguard Station has ever presented, so well done to our Badgers and young Cadets for all their hard work and for braving the rain in their wetsuits!
