Happy Dolphins held first aid workshop in La Terrenas

In a continuing effort to promote safety in DR tourist destinations, the non-profit organization Happy Dolphins held a first aid certification workshop at the Isla Academy School, located in the vicinity of Playa Bonita, in Las Terrenas, Samana.

The certification was granted after a rigorous two-day course given by the experienced certified instructors in first aid and lifeguarding, Carlos Jambrina and Ronal Martínez. The training addressed both the theoretical and practical aspects of first aid and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), focusing on critical situations that could arise both on land and in the water.

Among the topics covered are first aid for people at risk after events or accidents, such as drowning, electrocution, asphyxiation by immersion or obstructions, burns in their different degrees, automobile accidents, reptile and poisonous insect bites, allergies, among other risk and health situations.

The course is endorsed by the American Aquatics and Safety Training, an international first aid and lifeguard training institution in New York City, and was also supported by Isla academy, Las Terrenas; the ImaginAcción Foundation, Europcar and Residencia del paseo.

In addition, as an integral part of the training, participants also received a talk on water sports safety, given by surf instructor Marcus Bohm, and an introductory training in Playa Bonita on basic first aid techniques in the water.
