Naval Station goes to sea Landing craft launched Volunteers from the Security and Pub- lic Works Departments launched a Navy LCM (Landing Craft Mechanized) at the Njardvik Pier last week. The craft was officially put to sea last week when the crew rendered honors and "piped the side" to Captain Jack T. Weir, Naval Station Keflavik Commanding Officer. The vessel originally came from Naval Station Argentia, Newfoundland, and has been at Keflavik for the past two years until recent repairs made it operative. Weighing 40 tons with a length of 56 feet, the LCM-6 (Mike-6) was made for moving equipment from a larger ship to shore, according to Ensign R.A. Sefton, Public Works Transportation Division Of- ficer. SN TOM JEFFERSON tweeds a line for the LCM-6 (upper left).

When the truck stopped ahead of her at the NTC gate, she learned that the driver, a retired master sergeant and the NTC librarian, had suffered a possi- ble heart attack. DeBlois took charge and aided the man until an ambulance and an emergency team arrived. Following major treatment and a hos- pital stay, the man was able to go home to convalesce. If DeBlois had not acted immediately and started the first aid process, the man might have died, since the four to six minute time span following a heart attack is the most important period in such an emergency. If the correct life saving process is not begun immediate- lly, death or irreparable damage to the Drain could result. This is the reason that the Red Cross has undertaken a massive campaign to train at least one person in every family in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) . The odds of surviving heart attacks, drownings, drug overdoses or electric shocks are heavily weighted in favor of those victims who are lucky enough to have a CPR-trained relative, friend, coworker or passerby on hand. The CPR course consists of seven to 10 hours of instruction and involves ex- tensive practice of life-saving techni- ques. Red Cross students are taught how to recognize a heart attack, how to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to someone who has stopped breathing and how to pro- vide artificial circulation for someone whose heart has stopped by giving ex- ternal cardiac compressions—rhythmic pressure on the chest with the heels of the hands. Inspector General of the Navy Rear Admiral Stanley J. Anderson visited the Naval Station last week. During his stay at Keflavik, the in- spector general consulted with person- nel who desired to meet with him to dis- cuss problems or suggestions. To receive a general overview of respective operations, the admiral was briefed on the Naval Weather Service and Environmental Detachment, Air Forces Iceland and Fleet Air Keflavik intelli- gence and operations divisions. RADM Anderson also toured Patrol Squadron 56 as well as the Naval Com- munication Station, Explosive Ordnance Disposal Detachment, Naval Security Group Activity and the Naval Facility. The inspector general was hosted by Rear Admiral Karl J. Bernstein, Com- mander Iceland Defense Force.
