The philosophy here at Siquijor Water Sports Inc is one where we are always trying to improve the safety and preparedness for any emergency situation that may be encountered.

We have one, if not the only AED within the local region. This AED is available for use by anyone who has a suspected Cardiac Emergency including the local clinic or ambulance.
