Defibrillator and Safety Protocols at Marina Punat
A defibrillator is a portable electronic device that can restore a normal heartbeat by sending an electric shock to the heart during a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). SCA is a life-threatening condition that occurs when the heart's system malfunctions, leading to an irregular heartbeat and the interruption of blood flow to vital organs.
Safety Protocols at Marina Punat:
Marina Punat has strategically placed defibrillator in easily accessible location at the entrance to the control center (next to main marina office). Defibrillator is prominently marked with clear signage, ensuring it can be quickly located in case of an emergency.
Our dedicated staff conducts regular maintenance checks on defibrillator, ensuring it is fully functional and ready for immediate use.
Proper training is provided to our team members, equipping them with the knowledge and skills required to handle emergency situations effectively.
We prioritize raising awareness about defibrillator and the usage among our marina visitors, staff, and boat owners. Regular communication channels, such as signage, brochures, and digital platforms, are utilized to educate the community about the location and importance of defibrillators.
In addition to defibrillator, first aid knowledge and skills play a vital role in ensuring the well-being of individuals during emergencies. At Marina Punat, we emphasize the significance of first aid and encourage our staff and visitors to undergo basic first aid training. By equipping ourselves with first aid knowledge, we can provide immediate assistance before professional medical help arrives, potentially saving lives.
Some key first aid measures to keep in mind are:
- Basic CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) techniques.
- How to handle bleeding, fractures, and burns.
- Management of choking incidents.
- Recognizing signs of heat stroke and heat exhaustion.
