To finish the week we ran through a few scenarios thoughtfully provided by Jen. Lucky Chad ended up as a diver with a bend in his favourite position...clenched between another chaps thighs!

Tonight is our first scenario night. So far it seems to be going well, but we are only being drilled on what we've learnt so far, so pretty simple stuff.
In this photo Chad and Tom are dealing with an unconscious sailor who has been hit on the head with a boom. As taught they are working through their check cards and trying hard not to panic!

It seems like no time since we did our last first aid course. However, it's three years now so here we are again. This time we have a lovely instructor called Jen who seems to know what she is talking about...which is encouraging!
It's always tough to concentrate at the end of a long working day but of course, there's a great incentive when doing first aid...the understanding that you are gaining the knowledge to save a life. Good news.
