Whitewater Rescue Technician Course

25 05 2012

This weekend some of our River House boating staff are participating in the Whitewater Rescue Technician course taught by David McNeil a Fire Captain with the City of Eugene.

Whitewater Rescue Technician (WRT)

This course is designed specifically for professional guides, private boaters, fish and game personnel, and others who work or play on or around flowing water. Students will benefit from this intensive, hands-on course and will learn to use techniques and simple equipment to assess and perform river rescues. The emphasis is on speedy, low-tech, and improvised rescue techniques that are effective and require minimal equipment.  Certification by Rescue 3 ( http://www.rescue3international.com/R3home.php )

Here is a video shared by Ray Cole as a reminder to us to respect the river:
