Emergency training in LC

| 26/03/2009

(CNS): The smallest Cayman Island and the only one without a hospital is now more prepared for medical emergencies after 44 Little Cayman residents were fully certified or re-certified in various areas of first aid and life saving techniques during a a multi-agency training session held at the Little Cayman Beach Resort. Organized by the RCIPS, the course saw participants trained in CPR, AED (defibrillator training) and first aid, under the instruction of EMT Brian Burchell from Cayman Brac and Mary-Ellen Cutts, the Little Cayman Nurse.

“In a small island community where medical resources are limited it is important that we have as many people as possible trained in life saving CPR and general first aid skills,” said PC Darren Coles. “I am really pleased that so many people turned out. As community officer on the island, I continue to strive to make Little Cayman an even safer place to live and am delighted that the community came together on this venture.”

The course was held over a three day period at the Little Cayman Beach Resort. Special thanks are sentto Jason Belport, General Manager and Marc Le-Blanc Operations Manager for providing the venue free of charge.
