SCV First Aid Evening – all welcome

Sport Climbing Victoria and Red Cross are working together to bring something special to the climbers in Victoria. A specialised 2-hour session will go through climbing-injury specifics in a controlled environment.

WHY: when you’re a casualty, your well-being is in the hands of your partner/s…so please consider asking them to hit “LIKE”.

COST: $20 per person, all profits will go back into the outdoor climbing community via Cliffcare.

CONTENT: it’s all about stabilising an injured climber, as best you can, while you wait for the cavalry. So, amongst other things, and with hands-on exercises, you can learn what first aid the experts would do for:

– head, neck and back injuries

– bleeding

– fractures

– unconscious climber

– and more

You do NOT get a certificate. This is about what to do, and what not to do, when things go pear-shaped at the crag.

VENUE/S: Bayside Rock, 9 Network Drive, Carrum Downs

WHEN: Wednesday 22 June, 7pm to 9pm. Additional sessions will be run if there is demand.

RSVP: Please indicate on the facebook event if you plan to attend and see you there!
