This two-day comprehensive course is designed for Class II and above kayakers, rafters, canoeists, and open-toppers that want to learn specifics of river rescue. The class starts indoors; however, most of our time will be spent “hands-on” in Riverside Park learning many first responder techniques, such as how to set up zip lines, effective throwbag use, knot-tying practice, real-life rescue management, Z-Drags and more. The course includes lunches, Saturday night dinner, videos, and use of major rescue gear. Some gear is required. Space is limited. Please call for more details.
