River Safety & Rescue for Paddlers

8:30 am - 6:00 pm

Fee: $75

Registration Required With Five Rivers MetroParks. Signing up there does not sign you up for this program.

The Swiftwater Rescue workshop teaches recognition and avoidance of common river hazards, execution of self-rescue techniques, and simple rescues for paddlers in distress. Emphasis is placed both on personal safety and on simple, commonly used skills. Fundamental techniques for dealing with hazards that carry greater risks for both victim and rescuer, such as entrapments, and pins, are also taught. This course is aimed at whitewater boaters interested in learning fundamental river rescue skills. Boaters should be able to competently maneuver their craft in class I-II rapids. However, all boaters, and non-boaters with an interest in swiftwater rescue (e.g., professional rescuers), will benefit from the class. Participants should be in good health and overall fitness, possess solid swimming ability, and be comfortable swimming in moving current during river drills. Participants should dress appropriately for weather and temperature and expect to be in the water for extended periods of time. Weather Dependent.

AGE: 18 and up
