Fishermen equipped with scuba lifesaving

Quang Ngai, November 21 (VNA) – Fifteen fishermen in the central province of QuangNgai’s Binh Son district have been equipped with scuba lifesaving through a three-day training course funded by the Francophone Association for Mutual Aid and Promotion of The Life Sciences (AFEPS).

The November 16-18 programme cost 458 million VND (20,298 USD), with 387 million VND (17,152 USD) sourced from the AFEPS.

Experts provided the local fishermen with basic skills to prevent and handle diving-related accidents.
Each trainee received a diving cylinder set from the AFEPS after the course, which aimed to help participating fishermen know how to rescue themselves and pass the knowledge to others as well as know scuba equipment maintenance.

A similar AFEPS scuba course was scheduled for another 24 fishermen in Quang Ngai’s Ly Son island between November 19 and 24.
