By Garry Phillips, Dive Manager, Sarteneja, Belize. Four members of the Sarteneja Tour guides association (STGA) recently took part in the Emergency first responder course. They require a First aid qualification to be able to renew their guides licence.
BV held the course in Sarteneja and after many rescue breaths, bandaged limbs and emergency first responder statements they were successful in passing the final exam and all practical aspects of the course.
The STGA members are all from the local community and have the responsibility of guiding, informing and ensuring the safety of those visiting Belize.
