Bronze is a winner

By Riverine Herald

IT’s not easy to get your bronze medallion.

And with good reason.

Those who receive a bronze medallion could at any stage be called on to help save someone’s live around the water.

It’s an incredible responsibility.

But that responsibility hasn’t scared off seven locals.

Instead, they were this week presented with their bronze medallions.

It was a tough assessment to get to this point.

In a ten week program, candidates were required to demonstrate competency in CPR (awarded RLS CPR accreditation).

They also participated in both theory and practical sessions, water safety, accompanied rescues, defensive techniques, underwater searches, initiatives, survival skills and timed swims.
