Flotilla 1-4 Training Day, September 29, 2012

CPR/AED/Litter Carry training. Saturday 29 Sept 12 at USCG Station Destin. Instructor was Auxiliarist Mike Thornton, certified EMT and Paramedic. We had nine Auxiliarists and two active duty personnel in training. Training was completed to fulfill training requirements, brush up on skills, and better prepare personnel to help when called on whether on land or water. The training also showed just how tiring performing CPR can be and what to expect if called on to perform CPR for real. Also highlighted was the need for teamwork and communication when doing the litter carry exercises. Photos by John Ryan, FSO-PA Flotilla 1-4 Destin, FL.
