Medical Emergencies
Medical emergencies may arise while out to sea on a shark fishing boat. Each vessel must be equipped with a first aid manual as well as a medicine chest suitable for the number of people on board. These items must be kept in a readily accessible location. Vessels with three to sixteen people on board must have someone who is certified in first aid and CPR (someone who is certified in first aid and CPR can count as both). As the number of people on board increases, so must the number of certified people in both first aid and CPR.
