If you do not think that drowning is a major health problem and a high risk factor for water sports enthusiasts then you probably don’t work in a hospital emergency department.

 

Every water user should be familiar with the skills and techniques required by first responders in the rescue and treatment of a casualty. This guide will give you those skills and prepare you for real life water based emergencies. Knowing what to do and when to do it can literally be the difference between life and death.
