Emergency Medical Course Offered By Marine Safety

Preparing their crews on vessels or rigs to deal with emergency medical problems can significantly reduce medical care costs, lost-time injuries and legal problems.

In response to requests from a number of clients, MarineSafety International has arranged to have an emergency medical course presented at the MSI Training Center at LaGuardia Airport in New York City. The course, to be held December 6—8, is designed to meet the unique requirements of the marine environment.

It will be conducted in conjunction with Emergency and Safety Programs, Inc. (ESP) of Miami, Fla. Over the past eight years, ESP has conducted "Emergency Care At Sea" seminars for numerous marine and offshore firms including Sun, Exxon, ODECO, Mobil, SONAT, CNG, Global Marine Drilling, Jackson Marine, and the U.S. Customs Patrol.

Among the topics that will be covered are treatment for shock, wound management, burns, hypothermia, suspected heart attacks, chemical exposure accidents, head, neck, and back injuries, management of stroke victims and treatment for near drowning.

The program curriculum follows the U.S. Department of Transportation developed "First Responder" course outline and is approved by the U.S. Coast Guard.

The course will be held at the MarineSafety training center, with some practice portions of the program carried out in MSL's engine room, cargo control room and ship's bridge simulators. Attendees will stay at the nearby Sheraton Inn at LaGuardia Airport. The fee for the course is $495 per person which covers training materials, lunches and local transportation.

For more information on the course, write or call Tom Garrigan, Marine Safety International, LaGuardia Airport, NY 11371.
