UB ERI Staff Are All First Aid Certified
As of this year, the entire UB ERI staff were trained in First Aid by professional instructor and Science Director (Marine), Dr. Leandra Cho-Ricketts . All staff including several student volunteers were trained over years in various emergency response training including Cardio-pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), Automated External Defibrillation (AED), Diving First Aid. Given the heavy scientific research activities carried out by ERI researchers and student volunteers, the need for emergency response is a priority. Fortunately, there has never been the need to act on any emergency response by any of its staff and if there is the need, everyone is now prepared.
