CPR on the Beach project has reached its finale - great and hot final scene took place in the city of Hel. Spectacular diver rescue scenario with RIB boats on the water and firefighters on land. The objective of the whole action was to encourage people who travel and spend their time doing water sports or other activities to practice regularly first aid training. Other goal was to promote safe recreation – to be aware of the emergencies and threats for health and life. Safe Water Safe Land instructors has driven through the whole Hel peninsula to organize sunny beach trainings and invite kite surfers, wakeboarders, boaters and sunbathers to care for their safety and security.
CPR on the Beach pre-release – it was a hot evening at Wawa Wake’s Beach!
The mission of Safe Water Safe Land is to promote safety and rescue skills among people who travel and do water sports. That is why we invited wakeboarding fans, wakeboarding instructors and cable operators to participate in a rescue event. There are two 2.0 wake cables in Wawa Wake – one of Warsaw’s wake parks, both are with water obstacles (kickers, slider, and fun box) and although everything was organized with concern for security, it’s not hard for an accident to happen as in all other sports. So we performed our actions at full speed – training was conducted on the water and on the beach. There were lifebuoys, rescue buoys, lifebelts and AEDs in action! We showed how to extract and transport the injured rider from the water using the proper equipment. Afterwards we practiced resuscitation on dummies and the use of AED. Emotions were running high! We now look forward with energy and enthusiasm to July – see you at the Hel Peninsula!
