WESTPORT - Washington Sea Grant/WSU Cooperative Extension has scheduled CPR and First Aid workshops for commercial fishermen to help them comply with new Commercial Fishing Vessel Safety Act requirements.
The two, four-hour workshops will be held in Westport on Monday, Nov. 18, for CPR, and Tuesday, Nov. 19, for First Aid, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Fire Hall in Westport.
The Commercial Fishing Vessel Safety Act requires that a fishing vessel with more than two people on-board have at least one person trained in First Aid and CPR. Space is limited and pre-registration is advised. Cost for both workshops is $28, or $23 for just one session. Fishermen and Friends of Westport is covering the cost of the program for the first twenty participants.
