First and foremost, it was all about very tangible things: Among other things, the new SeaHelp membership model was explained to the employees in detail, new developments in the area of boat technology were communicated and changed regulations in the nautical field were addressed.
The emergency services followed with particular interest a lecture on first aid on board, which was given by the employees of SeaHelp’s cooperation partner KIRT Styria and which gave the emergency services the opportunity to lend a hand themselves. Classics such as wound care or professional cardiac pressure massage, for example, need to be practiced over and over again to be able to help in an emergency.
The five-day refresher course on roadside assistance was so well received by all employees that it was decided to hold such a training course before each new water sports season. Not only the emergency services benefit from this, but ultimately also the members.
