Emergency contacts

Please make sure that the club has your chosen contact number for us in case of an emergency, next kin, neighbour etc. (not your own number :-) ).

This will be held by the OOD in a sealed envelope.

Evac location

I case of emergency the casualty should be taken to the mud ramp next to the wooded (swimmers) ramp. This area should be kept clear of launch trolleys so that the rescue boat can be run aground if necessary. The Defibrillator is in the class room, this should be fetch and brought to the evac point if necessary.
