3 Feedback on First Aid Course
The first aid course was a three day Level 1 Wilderness course designed for Marloth Park, which is over an hour away from a major centre. Wild animals are present in the Park and animal attacks on humans can be rapid and violent causing tremendous damage. Safety first was stressed with prevention and then treatment.
To train people to be first responders would involve setting up a plan of action and considerably more equipment would be needed. An AED (automated external defibrillator) alone costs in the region of R30 000.00. Funds would have to be raised for these major expenses. Other questions posed were who would be available to be called out and where would the equipment be stored. At present the closest AED is in Malelane.
