Why is being an Emergency Provider important? The critical care an injured person (diver) receives in the first few minutes of an accident can be the difference between life and death. It could be the difference between a minor injury and catastrophic consequences. It is your duty as a great dive buddy to be trained to handle emergency care. Be Responsible.
