Be the First Responder: STEAM Powered Safety

The videos below are provided to educators, students, and schools. The goal is to demonstrate the value of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) in bystander rescue care during human beach emergencies and early warning actions the public can take to protect our precious coastlines. 

The “Be the First Responder” initiative will be partnered with the Surfriders Foundation as part of our Ocean Rescue Our Ocean Program. Everyone can be a first responder to help others and our oceans.

The videos in the red menu below are more medical in nature. They provide the viewer with a deeper dive into the STEAM related underpinnings of bystander rescue care.
