Our ships are supplied with first aid equipment and our officers are certified to deliver emergency first aid. We also have radio telephones and cellular phones aboard which allow us to communicated with medical personnel, if required.
It is the policy of Toronto Brigantine to control the use of medication (prescription or non-prescription) for the alleviation of symptoms of seasickness. Such medication may affect a trainee’s performance in such a way as to compromise his/her safety. If, in the judgement of the Captain, the trainee’s symptoms are severe and/or longstanding, the trainee will be relieved of his/her responsibilities and offered medication from the ship’s first aid supplies.
