Water Rescue :  We have all been taught the Reach, Throw, Row, Go rescue sequence for water rescue.  This class will focus on the Reach, Throw and Row portion of the sequence, while understanding the roles in a GO rescue.  Participants will work on different Reach and Throw rescue techniques as well as learn the basics of Rowing their department inflatable boat.  We will finish the class with understanding your role in a GO rescue situation. 

To become familiar with your own equipment, please bring your departments water rescue equipment, including ice rescue suits. You should expect to get wet and dress appropriately and provide your own PFD.  Participants may be required to travel to two different locations during class.

maneuver a charged hose line. The class will also practice moving while flowing water.
