Following on from last week's Basic Life Support session, we had another very successful and well attended refresher for the AED, Automated External Defribullator. 

All bar our newest recruits had attended the AED SDC as part of Mid Herts Divers commitment to safety, to have all members currently proficient in Rescue Skills.

The AED trainer was kindly on loan from Rod Reeves of Herts Lifesavers and complements the two Laerdal AEDs that Mid Herts Divers owns. Combined with the Oxygen Administration kit and First Aid kits these form our 2 "yellow boxes" that we take on dives.

In the New Year, we will refresh our First Aid skills. A great use of the winter months when open water dives in colder water are less enticing!
