Personal safety is always top of our agenda, be it in thought, word or deed.
Earlier in the year members undertook Wilderness First Aid training in the unlikely event of an unplanned landing … on ‘terra firma’. November saw members take the plunge – water egress training ! Planned or unplanned, a water landing adds new dimensions disorientation and potentially underwater entrapment to name but two. Water Egress training is designed to assist crew members in understanding and overcoming these real time issues. Where better to learn such techniques than in the safety and warmth of a heated swimming pool.
Both these exercises were financed directly by MIASARS as a result of funding provided from the BC Gaming Grants.
