As part of their commitment to water safety Marex Marine and Risk Consultancy have donated one of their water safety training manikins to our group.
The manikin (which has been named 'Wilson') will be used in various aspects of safety training. The Scouts have already been using it in their Scoop Stretcher training. This will also be used in 'man overboard' training which are part of the Power Boat Level 2 training which Scouts and Explorers will be doing later in the year.
Volunteers who support the water based activities will also have the opportunity to carry out recovery drills to fine tune their skills.
Marex Marine and Risk Consultancy, like us, understand the importance of safety when working or adventuring on the water.
Thank ou for your generous donation
