Emergency First Response

First aid and CPR are essential skills for everyone, but especially for all those involved in adventure sports.  Divers are no exception to this.  Basic Life Support skills are vital for all divers and non-divers carrying out surface support – for that just in case moment.

Emergency First Response is a PADI affiliate that specialises in teaching these lifesaving skills – and they’re for anyone, not just divers. Our Instructors are highly qualified Diver Medic Technicians and First Aid at Work Instructors – so they know a thing or two about first aid.
