Cold Water Immersion Workshops
The Canadian Safe Boating Council will be hosting a 2-day Cold Water Rescue Instructors’ Workshop. Topics include mechanism of heat loss, thermal protecting realities, triage of the hypothermic victim, extraction techniques, re-warming, packaging for transport, and more. The Instructors’ Course will provide the tools needed to successfully teach first responders the proper rescue and re-warming techniques necessary to help save lives. The workshop has been postponed until October.
The course will be taught by Dr. Gordon Giesbrecht. Visit csbc.ca for more information!
