The day started with a quick trip over to Brewers Bay which provided various activities for the Rescues, Dolphins, and Neptunes. The Rescues split off to complete their last navigation dive. It was a hexagon scavenger hunt and even in the low visibility, everyone did it correctly! After the navigation dive, the Rescue students learned about providing oxygen and practiced the procedure for getting an “unresponsive” diver back onto the boat. I was able to lift my partner Olivia up and onto the boat! The Rescues also decided on the new code word for rescue drills, which is now “something cool”. This means that at any time of the day or night, the staff can yell “something cool” and we are responsible for correctly saving the pretend victim in the situation. Now we are all eagerly awaiting for the code word… all of us think that we will have a rescue scenario tonight. We then all met up together for a fun dive to end the day. Dinner was the best because we had summertime thanksgiving!
