Last Sunday members of St. John’s Ambulance visited DBSC. Don’t worry, no one needed to go to hospital. Their visit was part of a first aid training course that was organized by our very own Dr Christine Linhart. Seventeen enthusiastic members toiled from 9am to 5pm and immersed themselves in first aid protocols and procedures. It’s part of the club’s initiative to provide a safer racing environment. One of the participants, Justin Davey was glad to learn how to better assist in a medical emergency, explaining, “a focus on first aid competency can only add to the safety of club activities in what can, at times, be a physically challenging sport that is prey to the whims of Neptune.” Don’t worry if you missed out, more first aid training courses will be scheduled next season.
