Friday, August 5th, 2011 @ 16:25 Emergency First Response, News

Kota Kinabalu, Sabah: It was a day of training at Downbelow’s PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre yesterday as local Divemaster trainees received Emergency First Response training.

PADI Instructor Cyril teaches EFR to our Divemaster traineesDownbelow’s permanent staff & PADI Instructor Cyril took the greenhorns – Jerry, Jeffrey and Victor – under his wing and spent the day with them teaching the ins and outs of being an Emergency First Responder.

We pride ourself on the fact that virtually all the staff at Downbelow are EFR certified, even the office staff, so it’s early on that our trainees are brought up to speed to be ready in case of any eventuality.

The Emergency First Response (EFR) course covers emergencies in general, and is therefore ideal for everyday life, not just for divers and we regularly conduct the same course for corporate groups.

The EFR course prepares the participants for emergency situations where they would arrive before trained medical staff do to assess the situation, assist with emergency breathing, and basic treatment for severe shock and bleeding.

It’s a required component for some of the more advanced PADI courses, but it is also a valuable edition to anyone’s skills set, because you never know where and when an emergency situation could occur.

Our trainees are now EFR certified and will next deal with with EFR for Kids & Infants, which has different aspects to consider.

Check out our EFR page for more information. If you’re interested in the EFR course for personal development, your group or company, contact Downbelow for a customised package.
