The Ocean Rescue community of practice builds on the success of the Med Tac Bystander Rescue Care Program and our Adopt a Cove initiative that places Rescue Stations at Southern California beaches. We fuse bystander rescue information care for water enthusiasts with the information that can help humans prevent damage to our precious ocean ecosystem. The Surf Great Surf Safe initiative includes podcasts for surfing families, surf coaches, competitors, as well as vital information for those at higher risk such as big wave surfers and those surfing in remote locations. Med Tac Minutes are short videos of less than 12 minutes that provide critical care information – that is how long it may take EMS to respond to a beach emergency in the best of locations. The Surf Safe Surf Great theme will be the subject of one of our next feature length documentaries as part of the 3 Minutes and Counting series. To win the war against failure to rescue, the battle is against time. The brain and vital organs begin to die without oxygen at 3 minutes. Depending on direct action by Good Samaritans for the emergencies we tackle, we will be either “counting graves or saves”. Click here to view out Adopt a Cove video.
