Help is at Hand

People popping in to my house to drop off ready cooked dinners, supplies, newspaper supplements, photocopying, maps…   The last two days have been utterly insane.

In between all this, Doug Lang from Medwise very kindly offered to donate First Aid training to our group and so the last couple of days were spent at my home. He drove all the way here to train us – listening, learning, watching, practicing. bandaging, splinting, discussing…. Snake bite, hyro thermia, preparing for airlift, yup! The course included remote areas first aid. As we are about to spend a month walking the river, and as we are all bush wacked anyway, this latter was a real treat.

He checked our first aid kits, and made various practical suggestions for the walk. And then to top it all he presented the team with a first aid kit for the bush – special design that we can strap to the outside of a pack, and with everything that we need. This man knows the bush as well as first aid! What a combination. Penz has a valid level 1 certificate. The rest of us – all expired! (Well, we all passed, so now all are valid again). So we have all done first aid training before, and the 100% consensus is if you need first aid training – get hold of Doug Lang at Medwise. You can’t go wrong!

Sincere thanks Doug, we really appreciate all the effort you put into the training.
