Shark Attack First Aid Treatment Pack
Shark attack first aid treatment and training is a frequent topic at International Paramedic College local first aid classes we run on the northern rivers of NSW. We are based in the Ballina, Evans Head Byron Bay corridor that has seen several shark attacks and a number of “incidents” over the last few years.
In response we have developed the “Shark Attack Pack”. It combines a number of first aid products to deal with traumatic life threatening haemorrhage and training in their use.
What is in the Shark Attack Pack?
The kit consists of a Combat Application Tourniquet (CAT) tourniquet an 2 emergency bandages sometimes referred to as an Israeli bandage a pair of paramedic shears to cut wetsuits and gloves and training in their use.
Can you teach us how to use it in an emergency?
Yes we can. Just as important as the contents is that we will teach you how to use them in an emergency. This can be done for community groups or local emergency services or we can do it one on one or for groups via video conference like skype. We think it is important to have the right stuff but it is equally important that someone knows how to use it in an emergency.
Contact us to arrange group training or call 0413244994 and we can discuss your needs, The pack costs will vary with the amount of training time required.
We can also deliver this training Australia wide.
