A pair of upcoming classes in Pugetropolis will provide fishermen a chance to learn how to render first aid on the water.
Put on by Washington Sea Grant, the Coast Guard-approved course will include “CPR, patient assessment, hypothermia, cold water, near drowning, shock, trauma, burns, fractures, choking, immobilization and essentials for first aid kits.”
The first is scheduled for April 6, from 9-5, at the Gig Harbor BoatShop.
The second is April 24, 9-5, at Squalicum Harbor, at the Port of Bellingham.
Cost is $100 — $50 for commercial fishermen.
