Safety is a top priority for SEAS and preparedness is essential to looking out for our members and students. SEAS has a long standing relationship with the American Red Cross, going back to the 1970s and we provide Red Cross CPR/AED/First-Aid annual training for our instructors and volunteers. We include instruction on what to do for medical incidents while sailing.
Whether on the water or at a SEAS social event, a Red Cross certified first-response person is always nearby.
CPR/First-Aid/AED for Adults classes (http://www.redcross.org/ux/take-a-class/program-highlights/cpr-first-aid) are offered in multiple locations by a SEAS qualified instructor in early spring before the start of the sailing season.
The class is subsidized by SEAS Bergen for SEAS Members to support safety in all of our activities.
