China’s first water base medical rescue training center was set up at Emergency Medical Center in Haikou on December 7th, a major step to strengthen the nation’s water rescue capability as the risk of water-related incidents continues to grow.

The Haikou Emergency Medical Center signed an agreement with Beijing Rescue Center and Hong Kong St. John Ambulance that formalizes their mutual collaboration of making the region more successful in carrying out water rescue missions.

The training center has recruited 24 members, who are required to take part in the training activities and those who pass qualification will receive certificates.

The training center will mainly provide professional training sessions for the provincial water rescue team, emergency handlers and various authorities to ensure a more rapid, efficient water rescue response.
