+1 Just a quick note
+1 Just a quick note
Every now and then we get a call that puts a smile on our face
A couple of weeks ago we ran one of the sessions we call "the basics", it's a snappy session ending with hands on CPR and AED for the attendees.
We do it free for groups the length and breadth of Ireland, we've run hundreds of them for thousands of people,
So back to the call, two of the people on the session witnessed a collapse, remembered what they learnt, used it, fired the AED and saved a life.
At sthoee we have a standing rule, nobody takes bows, we take successes along with the disappointments.
Everyone who supports this programme knows they were part of this, everyone who supports us is a part of this
everyone sthoee is part of this
job well done

Film Night @ Sthoee Lifeguard AED
It shows a real rescue
It shows real use of a defibrillator / AED
as well as how a well trained team works together ........
Film Night @ Sthoee: Rip current
This is about the best explanation that we have ever seen - along with great video, commentary and graphics.
after watching here are some test questions........
Is there such a thing as a riptide?
How can you recognise a rip current?
What do you do if you get caught in a rip current?
In 1821 we had our own Royal visitor in Dublin
The Harbour was a new feature in the area when in August 1821 In 1821 King George IV arrived in Ireland at Howth.
To mark the event (literly) his first foot prints were carved into the stone of the harbour and there they ramain to this day. They are at the end of the West Pier (our Pier!)
When you are swimming ask and we will take a trip there. You will have to do the math but I think take akes him QE2's Geat Great Great Grandfather
He had small feet.

Mayday bank holiday
Mayday bank holiday, no swim, have a great weekend
Lifeguards use radios on a regular basis. Sthoee keeps two sets , marine band VHF and digital CB. Marine VHF are a seriously useful piece of equipment on the beach as they tie us into the rescue services when we need to.
If you are interested in learning more about radios and lifeguards why not check out the website
