Junior Life Saving Award
Posted by lisa on 02 March
At the recent Presentation Evening the Junior Life Saving Award was announced, but was presented at Epworth swimming Pool during a Life Saving Session. The Award was presented to Oliver Craighill for his dedication to Life Saving and improvements in training.
WELL DONE OLIVER!
During the Junior Life Saving Session the participants learn the life skills of basic first aid and water safety. They also learn how to rescue someone who might be in need of help by using what they know, have on them and have around them. This can range from shouting and signalling to someone to getting into the water and towing someone to the side. At the moment they are learning about the different kind of ways to help someone out of the water if they need assistance and to know whether they should or shouldn’t get into the water to help someone if it puts their life at risk also. The skills that this group learn are vital as it could one day help to save another person’s life. - Chris Grayson Life Saving coach
Senior Life Saving Award
Posted by lisa on 02 March
The award for Senior Life Saver 2018 goes to Nisha Prabhaker.
WELL DONE NISHA
Nisha has shown long term commitment to the Life Saving group and is now preparing to take her Life Guard exam.
At the Senior Life Saving Club we push the participants to try and achieve their NPLQ qualification for a pool Life Guard. This includes basic and more advanced first aid skills such as how to treat a bleed to how to tell if someone needs CPR and how to administer it. They are also learning and training life Guarding skills such as lifting out an unconscious body as well as using a Rescue Board (spinal board) to help anyone who has a spinal injury. This group at the moment are going through and learning these skills for them to complete their NPLQ qualification for the first time and some are taking part and training to keep their knowledge up to date.- Christopher Grayson Life Saving Coach
