The importance of having First Aid knowledge cannot be underestimated for unexpected situations that can arise at home, in the community, while socializing or during a sailing event. The greatest benefit of First Aid is that it allows those trained with a potentially life saving ability to assist / maintain an injured or ill person, until an ambulance arrives at the scene.
A First Aid Course will be held at MYC, St James Tce,
