10 April 1999. My third dive during my NAUI Rescue Diver course. Depth: 4 meters. Sight: 0,5 meters. Water temperature: 2 degrees. Air temperature: 10 degrees. Pretty much the same as the second dive: Towed my buddy into the jetty, medic first aid, how to carry an uncounscious diver, how to pull a diver on land if needed, the importence of OXYGEN when there has been a scuba diving accident. And how am I finding my buddy if he dissapears before I can start doing all this? repetiotion is the first law of learning! Therefore we had to do this over and over again. And I am telling you guys over and over again: I truly reccomend the Rescue course for every scuba diver. It is really good to know how to help yourself and your buddy. Just the knowledge makes you more comfortable in the water, and might make your buddy to feel more relaxed also. That is an exelent way of prevention. Have a nice dive!

And remember to repeat your rescue course from time to time, and do the exercises with your buddies in the water. Knowledge is one thing, experience is something else!
