First Aid Session

First Aid Session
Several club members took advantage of a First Aid Information Session arranged by the club and held Sunday 28th May 2017 from 10am to noon in the clubhouse. Johanna Moloughney, a certified Red Cross instructor and club member, led the group through the steps that should be taken when coming across a non responsive person. We were told to check A - Airway, B - Breathing and C - Circulation. When calling 911, use the ground address of the club which is: 961 Ninth Street, County Road 18, Fergus. We had demonstrations of chest compressions on manikins, and of adding oxygen to the body via mouth breathing which should be done with a face shield (our First Aid Kit contains a face shield). Finally we were shown how a defibrillator works - simple voice commands lead the user through the steps. There was discussion about whether the club should acquire a defibrillator (or AED) with most agreeing we should.

Wrap Up and BBQ
Johanna did a great job and we thank her for giving us the workshop.
After the session, Commodore Ed cooked up a BBQ for everyone (thanks Ed).

Do you know where the club's first aid kit is????
Look in the kitchen for the sign on the wall - the kit is in a top drawer. If you use anything from the kit that needs replacing, write it on the Supplies Needed list hanging up on the kitchen wall.
