Surface Water Rescue and Swiftwater Rescue

 

These two courses have been combined in this four day delivery to train participants to the Surface Water Rescue, Level II; and the Swiftwater Rescue, Level II Technical Rescuer, according to NFPA 1006, 2008 edition. They have been designed to prepare emergency response personnel to perform rescue operations in moving water emergencies.
